Totally Mis – Printed Postal Envelop in Limca Book of Records

Dinesh Shivnath Upadhyaya, a teacher, writer, multiple world record holder & also an amateur Philatelist is having a unique envelop of denomination 100 ps. (Rs.1) which he found from bunch of old household letters.

The most important & unique thing of it is that, whatever is printed on outer side of envelop like national emblem, Satyamev Jayate, Bharat, INDIA, PIN, 100 is exactly reverse (mirror image) printed on the inner side of envelop, when it is totally open. I consider it as a major printing error.

As a philatelist he knew that any kind of printing error makes postal material (stamp etc.) rare & precious. Also he wanted to know more information about envelop from postal dept. so he used Right of information act, 2005. After a long correspondence with Indian postal dept. (Mumbai & New Delhi ) & Indian security press ( Nasik) he got following satisfactory & authentic information about his envelop.

This envelop was printed on June 1990.

Reverse printing on envelop is due to a kind of printing error called set off printing.

From philately officials, he came to know that it was the first time they encounter with such type of reverse printing error & it is one of the first kinds of case in India.

Indian security press (Nasik Road) from where this envelop is printed, the official accepted that this envelop with set -off printing error is inadvertently pass through examination section due to oversight.

Limca Book of Records (India) in their 2009 & 2010 edition featured my unique postal envelop as “Totally Mis – Printed Postal Envelop”
