Inverted Watermarks

19/08/2013     General, Hong Kong

Back in 2013 we dicovered this stamp, we've pictured it upside down so you wont miss it! 

Hong Kong is a very well studied philatelic area and the discovery of a previously unknown “watermark inverted” stamp is a surprise!

I can remember the first watermark variety I found, it was a Great Britain 1858 Penny Red – I was so excited. Now our team of experts ‘unearths’ a new watermark error from somewhere in the world every month or so but the hunt still hasn’t lost any of its thrill and this Hong Kong 1912-14 4c scarlet stamp was the best new discovery we’ve made in years!
