Unused stamps with plate flaws are rare.


Mi36 - was printed on dfferent types of paper, both thick and thin.


Very few unused examples exist as post offices were required to use up all of the 'PFENNIGE' issues before the 'PFENNIG' issues were released. The few examples that can be found usually have partial or no gum.
