Image Not FoundGot a big old envelope of these on paper. My Q is on the 20c ; what's considered "pale yellow flowers" ? I have one w/ postmark 1985 and I would say it's the '84 printing but the flowers look bright yellow to me and the original printing the flowers look dull yellow/ orange.

re: Malaysia- Johore & other states typeA16

Regarding litho and photo printed stamps, it is easy to discern the differences. Using a magnifying glass, look at the value of lettering on the stamp:

- lithographed = sharp, straight outline around the letters and numbers

- photogravure = ragged edges outline around the letters and numbers

Once you find one of each, you will quickly see the difference. It is the same on all litho and photo printed stamps from any country.
