In past 2 years I had seen lot of Gandhi Perf shift error, but recently I saw Perforation shift USA Gandhi 4 cents stamp.!!
One-way perforation mistakes occur when sheets of stamps are moved either vertically or horizontally during the perforation process it will error stamps, misperf stamps, producing error stamps.
Two-way perforation mistakes occur when sheets of stamps are moved both vertically and horizontally during the perforation process, instead of just one direction and it will error stamps, misperf stamps, producing error stamps.
Following is example of One-way perf error.
We all know what are ERROR stamps in Gandhi stamps collection. I am comparing following error stamps from India Leopard CAT stamps with Gandhi error stamp!! it will error stamps missing color.
Compare above cat stamp with following Gandhi stamps and you decide what is it?
Read my previous blog post more about how to make ERROR stamps.!!
YES, How to make it yourself.!!
I mean it to make ERROR stamps.!!
Also consider that how can this possible with lot of quality control while printing and after printing.!!
This is very common practice to make forged stamps as you will find large quantity as well as different stamps using chemical or exposure to sunlight.!!

Don't you see SIMILARITY between Gandhi Stamps from India and Leopard CAT stamps.!!!
So beware what you are collecting otherwise your collection might be ERROR.!!

"Art of Making Money - Philately Greed"
Now think that if they can error stamps, misperf stamps, producing error stamps, imperf stamps. any stamps with perforation they can print IMPERF stamp and than make a error in cutting.
Following is IMPERF stamp of 2008 Gandhi from India and not sure whether it's was available to general public or not.!! I don't it was available to general public otherwise it will be not that expensive.!!!
Either it's stolen from printing waste or forgery.!! and this kind of IMPERF stamp can be made in to error stamp.!!!
Also look at the currently available Gandhi ERROR stamps and think is this really make sense to pay very high price.!!!
So when the price is high (expensive) it needs to be make sure that you are not getting any facsimile, fake cancellation or getting ripped off by shill bidding same way it's happening in Gandhi Stamps and Philatelic material.
