One albino impression is ½mm above the normal inked impression (on all five stamps), while the other (top four only) is seriously misplaced (and offset on reverse, with reduced spacing (20½mm rather than 21½mm) between the 'SERVICE' lines. Third stamp with a slight crease but a rare and remarkable multiple, from rows 16-20 of a sheet which received a 'test' albino impression after use of the forme on a 6a sheet (whose smaller format required narrower spacing). To the best of our knowledge, no other such 'se-tenant' strip, involving two different albino varieties, has ever been offered for sale, from any of the Convention States.
