A UNIQUE IMPERFORATE PROOF SHEET SHOWING THE UNISSUED TRANSPOSED AMERICAN PRESIDENTS ERROR
1975 200th Anniversary of American Independence issue: Two differing mint imperforate proof sheets exist (this one having LIGHTER BLACK BACKGROUND behind portraits of those Presidents than found on the issued stamps) showing wrong portrait of Franklin Pierce on the 5c, and wrong portrait of Andrew Johnson on the 10c (transposed portraits error).
The other transposed Presidents error sheet, also mounted by the printers on white card, has a much darker pink background to the lower middle label than found on issues stamps, and is marked "Q541 BLACKS" in lower white selvedge being the House of Questa printers reference number presumed connected with the black printing. The error was noted after completion of printing with ALL SHEETS DESTROYED by the Crown Agents and printers, and the corrected printing sent to St. Vincent (the two error sheets accepted by O.J. Urch, philatelic adviser, from Prime Minister of St. Vincent Milton Cato per photocopy of "accountable items" text enclosed).
