UNITED KINGDOM 1996 F.D.C. - Christmas 1996.
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.

I donated many $100s to the Bushfire Funds to secure the few copies of these GB 2013 Christmas First Class stamps, that were offered from the discovery sheet of 50. Absolute stunners I thought!

GB 2013 Christmas 1st Class stamp, with quite spectacular Colour Mis-Registration - $A195!: The most striking error of this type I have seen in any very modern issue. Especially from the GB, De La Rue printings, who these days have VERY sophisticated computer eye quality controls to detect exactly this type of freak. From the one sheet of 50 from De La Rue printers, that was reported showing this error on some units.

Often a spike of electrical outage causes press to “hiccup” for a millisecond, and registration on the roll of paper is slightly skewed - looks like THREE colours are mis-registered here! Very attractive price as you can see superb MUH - “Christmas On Stamps” is a huge topical, and of course GB is mega popular a MUH PAIR for $A375 (Stock 683KR) or a SINGLE as shown - for $US133 - or $A195 (Stock 683KT)
