Hi All,

Was sorting and posting some France Airmails and came across one that has a color variation.
It is a France 1965 Mystere 20 2.00 F. (Scott # C41)
On most of the examples I have the jet is a dark blue, but in this one the jet is brown/black. I did not see a listing in the Scott catalog for this variety. Also on this one, the blue is really blue, but on my other examples, the blue has a bit of greenish tint.
If anyone can provide some insight to this "Mystery", I would appreciate it very much.
In the scan, the one on the bottom is the one in question with the brown/black jet.

Thanks,

Dave N.

The stamp at the top of your picture is the one that is cataloged by Scott (C41). Michel has it as #1514 with basically the same color designation. Nothing is mentioned in Michel either about the color variation on your second stamp. Perhaps sending your picture to Scott can result in a minor variety being added to the catalog.

The Yvert and Tellier catalog also makes no mention of a color variation. Nice find. Happy
