I found in a box of stmaps these two Nigerian stamps

Image Not Found

I am quite confused if it is a variety of color or another issue, I found on Yvert & Tellier the Bistre-yellow & gray color but not the gray one

Many thanks for your input

re: Nigeria unique color ?

The bi-colour was issued in 1954, the grey (which has a number of shades) in 1956. I can't see clearly from your pic, but the grey seems to have the re-entry variety around the value.

Many thanks all for your inputs and explanations

I re-checked my Yvert catalogue, the bistre-yellow & gray is Yv N° 79 and found the gray as N° 89.

Thanks Paul for SG cat value, however is it possible that from catalogue to catalogue the value change highly

Yvert catalogue list this stamps at 4,00€ MNH and 1,00€ used, then SG list it at £ 38,00 ???

The re-entry variety is £38, not the basic stamp
