From a past eBay purchase I recently found a pronounced variety on the 1973 3c Legends stamp. The map of Funafuti has an extra island at the western tip, or the "nose" of the "head" (Funafuti is often described as looking like a head from the air or space). See the attached image, which includes a normal to the right.

My copy is the first stamp from the 10th (bottom) row, right above the traffic light. The cylinder is 1A.

Has anyone seen this variety? I would like to find out if it is constant.

Thanks,
Brian Cannon

Brian, looks interesting but I know very little about modern stamps and even less about varieties.

Maybe someone else may be able to comment?
