I feel like I'm back at the optician's
Can you see the picture now ?



Colin says this isn't a variant just a variation.
What do you think ?
I've found seven of them so far
When is a variation a variant ?
Does it have to be a deliberate difference or just an actual difference ?
LOL

I have checked the artwork and YES - that stamp, with the rotated eye, is indeed a real variant and not a variation caused by the printing process, it sneaked in and I hadn't noticed...   apologies to Andy and anyone else currently searching through their bags.  


My Etsy shop - FarFetchedPhilately - is now open again :-)

No need for apologies - but I think that brings the number of variants I've found in this years issue to 12

As I said in my earlier post, once you've spotted the differences in the variants on the FDC and Valentine card, it's fairly easy to spot the ones that are only in the Early Bird, Special Delivery bonus and Forum Members LBEs.

However, it's the contents of the other LBE that are trickier. 
At first I thought I only had a pair of interesting stamps and the rest were boring "commons"

Take a closer look.
Some variants have more, some have less
some should have you in a spin


(If you want to find more variants, I really recommend you buy more LBEs)
