These Plate Varieties are mentioned in the UPSS Postal Card catalog under the Variety S17x, as follows: "(c) This card, produced by contractor Albert Daggett, is poorly printed. Plate damage, causing missing or deformed letters or ornaments, is fairly common. The many inking flaws found on S17 can be traced to the cheap, fast-drying ink and high speed presses (See Postal Stationery: MarApr 1963, pg 8). This card is found with damaged and recut plate positions too numerous to list, including mini-dents in portrait frame top. However, these varieties are very interesting and collectable."
PLEASE NOTE: The cards I have in stock are MINT FACE, i.e., NO PRINTING on the FACE, but printing on the back. Such cards are usually valued at about 40-50% of the MINT cards.
