re: Burma: Japanese Occupation stamps

I have doubts about all three, to be honest.
In Michel and Scott there is only one type mentioned, colour scarlet / carmine.

I found a picture of a block of four in an auction catalogue, and the stamp looks different both in colour as in printing detail. The stamps you show look a bit blurry.

Please note, I am not an expert on Japanese occupation stamps, I could be completely wrong.

re: Burma: Japanese Occupation stamps

According to Stanley Gibbons, the Burma State Crest was usually sold affixed to envelopes, particularly those with the embossed 1a King George VI stamp, which it covered.

Not sure about the other colors, could be proofs or fakes, but check the paper under the red stamp, if there is a king hiding behind the stamp, then you might have something there.

As usual they come in various shades of red.
