Barbados 2016 – Landships miniature sheet missing $5 value

Eight examples of the Barbados 2016 Landships miniature sheet missing the $5 value are reported to have been discovered in a bundle by a new issue dealer.

Two golds were used. One for the value (printed as a second process) and one for the rest of the design. It’s believed an uncut sheet missed the second printing process, but was otherwise perforated, cut into miniature sheets, packed with normals, and distributed.

Note: issued 17 August 2016
