Noting the all colors stage and red/blue stage have the missing red color error also. This is because the special red pane was not applied until
just before the final stage thus creating normal final stage panes.

There were 3000 pairs of each of the 1893 Dean Goods 0-6-0 train stamp progressive color proofs made for Saint Vincent.
According to invoices and other evidence the quantity of the final proof error panes is 120 which would create 3,000 error stamp pairs.
The imperforate versions of the error never made it to the perforating machine and this is why there are no perforated error stamps on the market
for this error.
The quantity of normal imperforate final stamp panes of the 1893 Dean Goods 0-6-0 stamps would be 120 plus the standard 200 panes of normal
imperforates which would produce 8,000 pairs of imperforate stamp pairs total.
