Barbados 1938-47 Badge of the Colony definitives

Printed in various shades and either perf 13½ x 13 or 14 x 14, the 2d value from column 9, row 11 of sheets exists with an extra frame line variety (SG250ca/da/ea). Conveniently, the top left stamp of corner plate blocks of four include the variety. It hasn’t been recorded until now that the very last printing of the value in August 1949 had more than just a subtle shade change to Carmine Rose made to it… the extra frame line was removed too. The images show a typical plate block with frame flaw and the 1949 printing without; the latter corrected version being much scarcer.
