Sorry its been a while but I thought I'd share this colour variety / difference I've come across .

It seems to be the same stamp "printing" ( not Enschede ) and would think this not just a lighter amount of ink used .

I'm guessing they are different engraving "re etched " from the Stoneham cat" but would the colour vary quite so much ? Or is it a true change in colour

Any thoughts ?

Hi ,

Following on from the previous picture I’ve started to sort through a big bag of similar castle stamps & have noticed several colour differences and positioning of the head & lettering .

Does anyone know of any specialist collector information on these castle stamps as would make an interesting aside study ?
