Was just about to sell this 8d due, but noticed what appears to be a shadow around 8d.

Is this a doubled example, or is it something that is quite common?

Reason: Expanded vague and lazy heading, and turned it into a question of some kind, and added images inline correctly.

Sorry, but not what I would call a double print.

I agree with David. A true double print should have two impressions of equal intensity.

Similar examples are found with the adverts on the reverse of the 1882 Second Sideface stamps (available from 1893). Double prints exist but are scarce but these shadow or 'kiss' prints are relatively common.

Here's an example of a double print from the New Zealand adverts.
