Bottom left corner plate no. 20284 block of 25 with incredible freak perforations, it appears that the sheet was creased and torn before the horizontal perfs were punched creating some bizarre shaped imperf between "stamps", additionally there is a strip of brown Kraft paper stuck to the back of the third and fourth columns to repair the tear, this was subsequently perforated, eye-catching conversation piece, it seems strange that the Bureau employee didn't just pull this sheet and put it with other printer's waste rather than have it go out into circulation
