Issued today in 1971

Guernsey. Decimal definitives. Issued 15 February 1971. Aside from a few colour shifts, just one major error is recorded – missing bright vermilion on the 2½p value. It’s unknown how many were affected, but the existence of a pair with one missing the colour and the other partially missing the colour suggests the error occurred progressively on a pane of 25 stamps.
