|S 110 err
as "Surcharge shifted from the bottom to the top! Very rare error,
more beautiful than inverted. Lightly hinged." Opened for $20
and closed with no bids. Scott values the regular stamp at 15c and
an inverted surcharge at $65 (June 00). Note
- although I am not an expert, (and this seller claims to be one!), it
would seem to me that an inverted surcharge is more uncommon than a
shifted surcharge. Shifting canand does happen all the time with
slight sheet misfeeds going into the press (in small amounts this
determines the centering of the stamp), whereas an inverted surcharge
means that the pressman has made an actual mistake and put the sheet in
the wrong way around.

and closed with no bids. Scott values the regular stamp at 15c
