There is a relatively common variety on the blue 2d stamp with a missing dot below the D. The first proof sheet from the plates for this stamp showed several faults included a white flaw near the full stop under the 1d on row 1 column 2. This was retouched by hand and in the process the stop under the 1d disappeared.
