Which gives it its intrinsic value. Added rarity factor for Admirals, the black lines show where the 400 stamps plate is cut to form selvedge stamps and straight-edge stamps. So any same side straight-edge stamp has 16 possibilities out of 400 stamps printed or 4% and only one (1) any corner straight stamp (center of the axis) or 0.25% out of 400 printed stamps. And that is an added rarity value over a single ordinary stamp. Panes of 400 stamps WITH such double imprint!!!!So it means here that this stamp have 16 possibilities per pane = not that much with such straight edge stamps because it has already a high CV... There might be only ONE such pane or 16 of these double imprint.. The CV of this stamp is not based upon the Unitrade #104 value... But on what it is hereby explained.. Make up your own deduction and logic...
And you will agree upon all where it is hereby explained.. Download your free copy on PERFINS (see below) to better evaluate any Perfins. In Stamp Collecting,'PERFINS' is a world apart.
What is the MOST important IS the'Rarity Factor' from'A' to'I'. The value of a Perfin is dictated by the number of stamps REPORTED which in return, determines the Rarity Factor.
You don't have to possess a rare stamp. You have to possess a Rarity Factor. Having less stamps being reported, higher the value will be. EXAMPLE: we may have a Scott #232 with a RF'C' which will be worth more than a'Blue Nose with RF'F'. C' has 11-30 reported copies and'F' has 301-1,000 reported copies.
Thus, we must understand that there is a kind of double concept to comprehend true value of a Perfin... And if you make a parallel with any normal stamps with such small number of issued stamps... Well we find REAL value of rare circulated Perfin stamps.. To download your free copy of the PERFINS HANDBOOK.
