The question here is rather
In reply to Roland Karlsson, Aug 1, 2012

The question here is rather - can you get banding without any mistreatment? And if mistreatment is needed, what mistreatment is it you need to avoid.

do you want a DP2 Merrill and if yes, how will it perform in your hands?

Or would you rather keep sitting in your chair, scout the depths of the Internet for DP2 Merrill pictures with flaws (actual or imagined), and then lean back and enjoy endless discussions and speculations about these rare occurences (again: real or imagined)?

Admit it: you are a Philatelist in disguise:

The origins of philately lie in the observation that in a number of apparently similar stamps, closer examination may reveal differences in the printed design, paper, watermark, colour, perforations and other areas of the stamp. Comparison with the records of postal authorities may or may not show that the variations were intentional, which leads to further inquiry as to how the changes could have happened, and why. To make things more interesting, thousands of forgeries have been produced over the years, some of them very good, and only a thorough knowledge of philately gives any hope of detecting the fakes.
