Falkland Islands 1964 HMS Glasgow error


The HMS Glasgow error is a 6d postage stamp error produced by the Falkland Islands in 1964. It commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1914 Battle of the Falkland Islands.The design error featured the incorrect ship, HMS Glasgow, instead of HMS Kent which should have been used.It is believed that only the one sheet of 60 stamps was produced and only 17 stamps have been recorded.
I am also in search of the stamp :)
