If you read these newsletters regularly you'll know that errors are consistently a hot investment topic - where rare printing mistakes create highly desirable and valuable rarities.
You have the added advantage of investing in a very unusual item that should never have existed and of earning a substantial return from somebody else's slip up. Errors are constantly in demand and frequently traded (though occasionally jealously guarded), so purchasing an error is usually an excellent investment decision - and the rarer they come the better.
There have been a number of famous GB errors over the years - we've even offered you a few of them. One in particular sticks in the memory as it is quite similar to the item I am able to offer you today.
That item was the famous '1976 Roses error', which mistakenly had the value of the stamp omitted. There were only six known to exist and the Queen owns five, with one of our investors proudly holding the last one available.
The error I am offering you today is of similar rarity value since there are only three known examples. Only you and two other people on the planet will own one of these...
The good news is that the error is recent, from the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and according to our stamp expert Hugh Jefferies, "varieties and errors from Queen Elizabeth II are making the big increases right now".
This is backed up by the prices in the new GB Concise catalogue, the annual 'Bible' of GB stamp prices, which sees the aforementioned Roses error jump up from £85,000 to £95,000.
Now you have your chance to take advantage of the increased interest in GB errors with this extremely rare and eye-catching block widely known as one of the great rarities of QEII philately.
It's a very limited chance though as only three of these are known to exist.

This is a set of stamps from 1970 produced to celebrate the life and writings of Charles Dickens, featuring scenes from some of his famous stories.
The orange stamp features Mr Pickwick and Sam Weller from Dickens' first novel The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. The pink stamp depicts Mr and Mrs Micawber from David Copperfield. Mr Micawber, the eternal optimist, was actually based on Dickens' father, John Dickens.
The blue stamp features the titular character from David Copperfield, which is thought to be Dickens' most autobiographical novel. Finally, the golden stamp features Oliver famously asking for more.
Each stamp is meant to be inscribed in silver ink at the bottom of the stamp with the name of the character portrayed. However, highly unusually for modern printing techniques, three blocks of the stamps were released without the silver ink.
You have the chance to own one of those blocks today. It is available to you for £40,000.

PS. ***STOP PRESS*** We have just added a Prussian Blue to stock. To this day the 2½d Prussian blue remains one of the rarest of Great Britain stamps. Quite simply it should not have been printed.
These stamps were made for King George V, by his special instructions, but the Post Office was quickly informed of a colour mistake (the stamps should have been blue, not Prussian blue) and the remaining sheets held in stock were destroyed. We are confident that only 480 of these stamps were ever printed.
While these stamps are rarely on offer anywhere, we are fortunate to have one in stock now, available to you for £11,000. Call my team on 0845 026 7170 or +44 1481 708 270. Alternatively, email us on email@example.com if you would like to grab this opportunity of owning one of the rarest GB stamps. It won't be in stock for long.
