31. Spectacular ERROR. The 2020 APO Stamp Yearbooks all have a very spectacular printing error inside - the entire word AUSTRALIA was MISSING , as well as year of issue on one $1.10 stamp. A huge error in this modern era of computer controlled error checking. NORMALLY the APO would simply swap them over for the corrected version, before placing them on sale - but this year, for the first time ever, all the 2020 annual books did not have stamps as usual in a cello. bag or Hagner, that you then had to placed inside yourself. There are now for each set, a complete a page of gummed paper, with design all around them, and perforated within that sheet.  Each page is like a huge A4 size mini sheetlet essentially! So to correct this. The APO, would need to destroy all of the books!, and print up new ones, WEEKS of work!  As the error was not noticed until almost the on sale date, it was too late for all that, as books are bought heavily each year as annual gifts, and in recent years, sell out very fast. They are never re-printed. The CORRECT stamp wording was on course on stamps in all the PO packs, on FDC, and in usual mint form etc. This error block is on front cover of best-selling Magazine “Stamp News” Such a “Country Name Missing” printing error will get into catalogues globally (such things in the past are many $100s, or even $1000s each) as many with this error were sold before Year Books ran out of stock. Where the price will finally settle on these albums, we have absolutely no idea - they are advertised at $450 already elsewhere, but when our stock is gone it is gone forever! MASSES of books will be broken up just to secure this error stamp block, the ONLY way to source it, and the rest used up for postage etc. making complete books scarcer than ever. Only 6,500 hand numbered copies were ever printed of the Executive Album. Every 2020 book, we sell has included extra, the CORRECT MUH version of this stamp added in for free. The complete 2020 Year Album, with $123 face of MUH stamps, including this error block 4, and all kinds of new formats of stamps inside, is just $375. We were only allowed to buy a few before stocks were virtually sold out! Price $375, one per customer please. LAST FEW, NOW $295! (APO2020)
