Spanish Andorra - 1993 Europa

28p Europa

The 28pta value showing a painting by J. Alan Morrison is inscribed "UPATREAM". However, Gibbons have listed this stamp as "UPSTREAM". Miss Pam Basley, Deputy Catalogue Editor, points out that as this painting is by an English speaking person, it seems reasonable to assume (until there is proof to the contrary) that the Spanish P.O. have made a mistake. Stanley Gibbons certainly have a point, as the stamp could possibly show a ship's bow making headway against water; therefore "UPSTREAM" is logical and may well be correct. Can anyone confirm which is correct?
