The first GB self-adhesive greetings booklet has been found with missing silver - which affects the Queen's head on 5 of the 6 stamps!
Normal booklet (SG QA1 or QA2 depending on the cover):
The centre stamp on the top row has a pale blue head; the three stamps on the bottom row have the head reversed out of the background (making a white profile head) which is then overlaid with silver. The other 2 stamps on the top row have the silver head on a white background. The effect of the error, shown on this news report from the Eastern Daily Press, is to produce two stamps with no head, three with white instead of silver, and one unchanged.
The find was brought to the Norfolk & Norwich Philatelic Society Centenary Exhibition last month. I saw the booklet when it was being discussed on the 'valuations and advice' table, though I was dealing with the sales table at the time.
As reported this is believed to be previously unknown and we are all eagerly awaiting the result of its sale!
