I have these stamps (not a full set I know)...


Image Not Found

Now the top row is on cream paper. I know this because it they are only printed on cream paper.

The second row is on white paper. I know this because these stamps are only printed on white paper.

The third row could be on either white or cream paper.


My problem is the top row's paper looks whiter than the second row. How do you tell these apart? Where do the stamps on the bottom row fit? Is there an easy way to test for toned (cream) paper over white paper.

A scan of the back of the stamps may make identification easier.

SG tells me the releae date for the white paper on the 10s was 14 Jan 1965, for the £1 it was 1 November 1964. Dated cpies may help with idntification.

I have read before that the use of a long range UV light is useful when trying to separate them.

I just wonder how the experts/dealers do it. I have a UV light over the fish tank, I should see if that does anything.

Don't drop the stamps (especially the mint ones).

In all my years of collecting, I have never used a UV lamp on my stamps.
