You appear to have a colour 'changeling' which has been caused by exposure to sunlight. Stanley Gibbons only lists another paler green version from the same issue. Yours was issued in 1880 and is SG52.

As you may know, greens are susceptible to extreme light exposure.

Bill,


I think this might actually be Scott #98 slate blue, issued in 1884

Indeed, Randy is right. My apologies. I missed that later issue showing the release date of 1.4.84; SG187.
