A nearly perfectly centered block from the upper right corner of the sheet, being positions 9-10 and 19-20.

This paper is not listed by Unitrade, but it is found on several stamps from this set and all subsequent sets up to and including the Admirals. Additionally there is a missing perforation pin resulting in a missing hole in the upper margin of position 20.
