Hi to all,

Now this is a strange anomaly.

The stamp on the right seems to be printed on some sort of Aniline paper which gives the stamp an all over pink appearance.
Also the bird on the right has a lighter blue colour.

I have posted a scan of the reverse of both stamps as well.

Under UV light the normal one glows blue, and the other glows pink.

Any ideas.

Regards
Horamakhet

Have you considered the possibility that it may have been soaked off a red coloured envelope?

Aniline ink was not used on any of the QEII stamps, and that the stamp does not have the aniline saturation that would have occurred once the stamp is immersed into water.

I have a few aniline ink stamps in MUH showing the aniline colour in better detail.

jillcrow may be correct about the light pink tone on the stamps.
