690 og 1906, 10c Violet & Black, Double Ovpt., One Reading Up (26a).> H.r., deep rich colors, wide margins<><>^VERY FINE AND CHOICE. ONLY TEN COPIES OF THIS RARE ERROR WERE PRINTED AND ONLY FIVE ARE
KNOWN.^<><>According to <<Canal Zone Stamps>>, the ove1906, 10c Violet & Black, Double Ovpt., One Reading Up (26a). H.r., deep rich colors, wide margins

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. ONLY TEN COPIES OF THIS RARE ERROR WERE PRINTED AND ONLY FIVE ARE KNOWN.

According to Canal Zone Stamps, the overprint was originally printed too far to the right, and the left vertical row did not receive an overprint. To correct the error, the printer turned the pane, intending to print just the one missing row. However, he placed the pane too far into the press, thus two rows received the inverted overprint.

There are five copies known with the double overprint with one reading up (Scott 26a) and four known with the overprint reading up (Scott 26b). These were mostly contained in an irregular block of eight with four of No. 26b and three of 26a, which was broken up after the Plass sale.

Ex Plass as part of the irregular block of eight. With copy of 1969 A.P.S. certificate for the irregular block of eight, this was the top right stamp. (Image)
