re: U349A?

There's a couple on ebay listed as U351. They both look quite a bit darker. Would that make this one slate?

re: U349A?

Really need a good clear scan (not color corrected) of just the indicia and even at that with the soiling and fade you would almost have to assume the most common color. But let's see a blow up of it.

Take it out of the glassine to scan it directly please. Scanning will not hurt it.

Here is a Philatelic Foundation-certified U349a; there are several others in the PF database that you can use for comparison.

Compare that scan from the PF database to this one where I taped the envelope to the window and let the sun work on it for a couple weeks.

The sun had no effect on the paper for that amount of time, but it sure wiped out the red component of the violet indicium.

re: U349A?

There are many ways to change colors, to create "blank denomination boxes" on GB and commonwealth stamps, etc. That is why many items should only be bought with a certificate.

I had a lovely used overprint from one of the Scandinavian countries that cataloged several thousand dollars. The cancel was over the overprint (a good sign). The overprint and cancel were both genuine but the dial of the small town (no date visible) had been replaced two years prior to the issuance of the stamp with a different font and size.

It takes a lot of research and knowing where to look to expertise a stamp properly.
