Reason: Added paragraphs and spacing and “air” – always a superb idea on Bulletin Boards! Used the AddSpace button. Use the "PREVIEW" button folks. It is there for a GOOD reason.

It would be nice if you would describe what you see as an error . . .

I don't see anything unusual, but then I am unfamiliar with the stamp.

Are you referring to the dark smudge beneath the matador on the left stamp or the two extra lines to his right on the right stamp - or, indeed, to something else?

Yes sorry. The 2 lines right of his feet. It is the only stamp on the full sheet that has this.
Thanks

I'm think error may have been too serious a word.....

Agree.
But it could be a plate variety. To determine that, you would have to see if the variety exists on the stamp in the same position on every sheet printed from the same printing plate.

If it does, chances are it will be listed in a specialised Spanish catalogue. :idea: :idea:

Greetings from Spain. It is a known printing variety that always sits in the same position on the printed sheet. The Edifil Catalog of Spain specified it many years ago (Pair of flags in the sand). The value of the postage stamp is 10 times the normal one.
Classic stamps of the world until 1940. Spain and Italy. Basic stamps.
