1962 US Girl Scout Stamp Errors

Gutter Pair Variety

At least one sheet is known of a gutter pair for #1199 caused by a pre-trimming foldover.  This is indicated by the crease in the left stamp.  The gutter is selvage, either unprinted or with plate numbers, advertising or accounting or control numbers, between the panes of a sheet of stamps.
