T206 printing correlation revealed from T206 test strips and overprints
Written by T206museum (July, 2005)
The cards present here are T206 test strips and ghost overprints.
These cards are extremely rare to find because they were considered as "misprints" and "junks"
to factory printers that they should have been destoryed and not letting them available to the general public.
Fortunately, there are a few of these examples survive and many collectors are willing to pay unbelievable
prices just to own one of these unique treasures.
From their unique look, they provide valuable information of how T206s were correlated on the press
sheets. Since there were no T206 printing plates known to survive and the only T206
uncut Wagner strip
could only be considered as a proof strip (its printing plate has not been used in actual T206
printing) therefore these T206 test strips and overprints are the only resources available to collectors
who has been doing T206 researches. If there are enough test strips and overprints exist, the
correlation of a complete printing plate could possibly be figured out.
