Upper Left Plate Scratch on an R164

I'm not a fly-specker and I don't look at my stamps in a way that I regularly identify plate varietes, but the stamp below is a bit different for me.  There is scratch running from the upper left margin through the upper left corner of the stamp and into the base of 2 that is so large that my naked eyes reconized the flaw.  I know that on the battleship stamps there are numerous plate varieties, though none are catalogued. 

Close up of the scratch.

I would be interested to see other examples of this scratch if anybody has one.  Please send scans to
