I have spotted that and other varieties. Actually there are so many on the sheet that spotting the common or basic stamp is the big task. All will be revealed when AskMe gets its revisions

Oh goodness - that's even more work when I get my new, bionic, eye!

I have a sheet of the 1p and 2p.  As I recall, every stamp on the 2p sheet is a "variant" so it is, as Steve says, difficult to spot the basic stamp - or maybe even to decide what the basic stamp is!!  Maybe on revision I'll can scan it in big and make it clickable to expand further and you can all play at "spot the variant"!

At least there are only 18 stamps on the 2p sheet rather than the 38 on the 1p

 Am I right in remembering that these 1p stamps were not intended to be sold as individual stamps but were a way of testing the software updates being written for the printing of the Discworld stamps?
 
If that is the case then are there any variations in print quality or content between the sheets? ie are they all from the same print run or are there a few sheets of smaller runs as the testing progressed?

I didn't make them with the intention of selling them at all, and yes, many of the variants were produced as a way of staying occupied at the printers while stampsheets were being set up or run (sit looking idle at our printers for too long and you were instantly put on tea-making duty...). It was only when visitors to the studio thought they were fun that we thought we should page them up properly and sell a few sheets.
 
There was only one, small, print run of the 2p and the 1p.
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

I've been meaning to post these for a while. They're items that I haven't seen mentioned before. The first must come from an uncut sheet of sheets of the Festival of Hats stamps. The second must be the world's smallest miniature sheet, possibly a trial.

I'm pretty sure that Penny Jack was produced for Wilfred. WB in the top cartouches are his initials.
