During the spring and summer months of 1986, the four wavy lines in the cancel became inverted. This presumably happened when the printing block (the wavy-line pattern) was removed temporarily in connection with the use of the "FŠr°erne i Focus" slogan. The machine, with the lines inverted, was used for several days before the mistake was discovered and corrected.

-same cancel (11) on Faroe Islands stamps and inverted waves

A few covers with wavy lines in the inverted position are also known from 14 August 1986. It is possible that the printing block may have been inverted for only a short time, perhaps when the cancellation machine was been cleaned.
