In the case of some T206 print anomalies, one flaw is not enough.  This portrait card of Dave Brain clearly illustrates that.  At first glance, a Piedmont Cigarettes ad, typically printed on the back of the card, is printed on the front.  In addition, it is upside down.  And mirror image.

None of that, however, can prepare the viewer for what is on the reverse.

host of print strikes - far too many to count - are applied in all directions to the reverse.  Right-side up, and upside down, at various points on the card.  Multiple "Piedmont" logos are visible, not counting the number of logos that have been printed on top of one another, creating a dense, black "Piedmont" in the middle of the card reverse.  There is simply no way to count the number of Piedmont ads that have been printed - forward and in mirror image - on the reverse of the card.  A wonderful example of how fascinating T206 print anomalies can be.
