Have you ever watched the movie Inception? A dream inside a dream…
We’ll, here you can see an inverted surcharge inception: an inverted “Correos” in a block of 6 with inverted surcharge. Sounds weird, I know, but let me explain it:
In this issue there are stamps with inverted surcharge because the pane was upside down when the plate came down. Also there are stamps with only the “Correos” inverted because it happened in just one position in the plate (position 46).
This block of 6 has 3 characteristics that make it special and fairly rare:
- It has the less common perforation for this stamp (14×14).
- The surcharges in this block are inverted.
- And last and most important is that the inverted “Correos” error is present. As you can see in the position 3 of this block, the inverted “Correos” error inside the inverted surcharge looks as if it wasn’t inverted.
Is it genuine? Yes, of course!
Just look at the stain between the “o” and the “r” of the inverted “Correos”.
For this kind of studies, we recommend the following tools:
