I need some help with the identification of the attached French stamp (right hand side in the image). It looks like Scott 60 but the paper is white instead of rose. I see no mention of a different paper variety in Yvert or Scott. Any ideas?Image Not Found

I'd say it's a Scott #60. Paper color can wash out after soaking, and it also can fade over time. That could be what happened with your stamp.

Using Scott numbers:
left stamp is #60, with the large oversized zeros and rose paper. Y&T #54
Y&T has a 54a (darker brown) that could fit the RHS stamp, but the rose color could be faded(?).

Or alternatively, right hand stamp is possibly #54, similar to #55 but paper color is different...and with a smaller 10...but I would guess from the size of the numerals it is more likely a large numeral Y&T 54a, with faded rose color, than a small numeral one.

The rose paper is used on 55 and 60.
Anyone else for an opinion?
