It started more than twenty years ago : I was watching an old envelope, when suddenly my attention was caught by the stamp on it. I could not believe my eyes : THE MAN ON THE STAMP HAD SIX FINGERS ON HIS LEFT HAND !

If you do not believe such stamps exist, look at the one it all started with !

(Stamp issued by
 MONACO in 1947)


Since that day, it has become a bad habit : each time I look at a stamp, I check it for errors. And in more than 20 years, I have found and collected more than 3.500 stamps with at least one thing in common :
"the crazier the error, the more I like it".

In the next pages, I am proud to present you some examples of
"MY CRAZY WORLD OF DESIGN ERRORS ON STAMPS".
