I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

Posted is a clearer picture of the stamp with backlight from my microscope. I posted on my last thread, but at the very end and some may have misssed it. If painted, which I am sure probably is, this image shows how well it was done. Mods if this is not allowed please deleate.

re: France Real or Painted? Number 2

I think it's painted.

I only know this about your stamp :

25 centimes blue : June, 19 1907. Yvert Catalog number 140
Types IA, IB, II, IIIA, IIIB, IIIC and IV


Image Not Found
Type I, II and IIIA

Type I:
the upper part of letter c in denomination almost horizontal,
head of numeral 2 less bent,
horizontal line of numeral 2 thin and curvy.

Type II (booklets):
letter c in denomination barred,
head of numeral 2 more bent,
horizontal line of numeral 2 thicker and less curvy.

Type IIIA:
left internal frame thick and irregular,
letter c in denomination not barred,
head of numeral 2 more bent,
horizontal line in numeral 2 thick but well curvy.


Image Not Found
Type IIIB, IIIC and IV

Type IIIB:
like IIIA but the frame is thin and the image higher.

Type IIIC (rolls):
like IIIB, vertical and sloping lines in letter R in FRANÇAISE forming acute angle.

Type IV (booklets):
letter c in denomination like in Type I,
head of numeral 2 more bent,
horizontal line of numeral 2 thicker than Type I but more curvy.
