CILP "Missing Colour" Variant Found

The "Chapman Lighthouse & Yacht" stamp released in April 2015, has been found to exist in two versions. The new "missing Yellow" variant of this stamp was discovered this month.
The CILP did not discover this printing omission until a recent franking of mail revealed the two versions side by side.

A check of remaining stock indicates that the last three sheets received from the printer were affected by the "missing yellow" colour. It is estimated that around 75 copies probably exist, and around half have already been issued as mint stamps to collectors or used on local and international mail.
