Has anyone seen that perf ? Worried

I have been saving this sheet for this 'Brit week' so here it is now. One only to the lucky chap (or chapess) whose name is first out of my Washington Nationals Cap on Sunday 3.30pm NY time.

Just plonk your name down here, keep your fingers crossed and then tune in on Sunday and see if you have nabbed it.

The Wildings1 Miniature sheet was issued in 2002 and proved very popular, the Presentation pack became quite pricey in a short space of time. Some while after the issue some sheets were discovered with a 'Blind' Perf, or missing pin hole. They were, initially, very much in demand but like most things philatelic, the excitement wears off and stamp collecting returns to normal.

Still hard to find, I have been searching this week and have not found any at auction and only one with a UK dealer at £10 ($15) which is about the price quoted after the discovery.

So this is the 'Prize'.
Good Luck.

Oh yes, most of you don't know me. I just find it hard to put only one item in a 'Giveaway', so expect something else to keep this sheet company on the long journey ahead.....

...and if you find that missing perf, do let me know !!Rolling On The Floor Laughing

Since the Nationals beat the Cardinals 2-1 yesterday, I don't have much hope for a Nationals hat helping a Cardinal fan, but I'd like to try anyway. One more for the hat.
