U.S.A.

Scott #232  1893

3¢ Columbian Expo

A Major Misplaced Entry 1

   Dropped Transfer Roll

This is the first double transfer I have seen on this stamp! If you look below the M of AMERICA, you will see a narrow band of extraneous markings that are indicative of a dropped transfer roller, just above the front sail in the sky. Further down is a vertical line that cuts through the B of COLUMBUS as well as the ocean above. There are also marks visible in and below the UM.
