Genuine Mi 15 Oddity
This is notable because of the missing ink on the right outer frame.
We don't know if this is a constant variety in one or more positions,
or if it is just an oddball feature on one or more sheets.

#15 Genuine Missing Ink
Uncertain Mi 15 Oddity
The stamp on the right was in an internet auction, but unfortunately the seller lost the stamp before he could mail it to me.
- The white area next to the clock face resembles that found on forgeries (see the lower image), but the rest of the stamp looks genuine.
- I believe the stamp is probably genuine, but we'd need a better scan or the actual stamp to be more certain.
Mi 15 F1 (type 1 forgery) Oddity
This is a constant-position plate flaw in row 3, column 4 (position 28) of #15 F1 sheets. (I have seen it on three different stamps, so it is probably a repetitive feature.) Courtesy of Joseph Matlak.
