I have just come across the 5c stamp below of William Tell's son in blue on buff and can't see it listed in those colours. Seems like these are the colours for the 3c.

Can anyone shed any light?

Hi Tim,

I think you will find the cancel is 1925 rather than 1910. It is the 5th Tell series issued in 1924, according to Zumstein, #157. The colour is "grauviolet" or "violett-gris". 185 million printed, catalogued at CHF0.50
