Sale 371, Lot 191, Later Issues8c Kossuth, Numeral "8c" and Blue Color Omitted (1118 var.). A Spectacular Error occurring in the U.L. Plate Number Block of a complete sheet, caused by a fold-over of the sheet corner before the final printing in Blue; The gummed side of the fold-over (which runs through the corner of the U.L. stamp) shows the Blue Plate Number and that part of the Blue Ribbon and Olive Branches missing from the stamp; the numeral "8c" is entirely omitted from this stamp; the stamp immediately below has the Blue Ribbon and Olive Branches Entirely Omitted. A Major Error of the same nature and created in the identical manner as the famous 1931 2c Red Cross Issue with Red Cross omitted. Very Fine; This newly discovered error is a major variety of equal stature to the Red Cross Error, and so far as is known, this piece is Unique
