This is the "withdrawn" Wembley Stadium Smilers sheet which contained an error in the bottom label of the second column EMILE instead of EMIL. The error was spotted by Royal Mail before the official release date and all Key account holders were requested to return the error sheets and were subsequently supplied with the corrected sheets. All key Account holders except NEW YORK who, for some reason, did not receive the recall notice. They were supplied with 400 sheets and some 300 or so are thought to have been sold to the public prior to this oversight being rectified by Royal Mail. At least 30 sheets were sold to a New York based collector who sold these on eBay and to UK dealers.  The rest are believed to have been distributed to Smilers collectors in the USA who are probably completely unaware of the error sheet int heir collection.
