Hi Tina, They are not the same. They have 2 different denominations, 2500 & 20,000.
You need to compare like to like!

Take Care!

These are both liberation area issues. Unfortunately, the $2500 stamp is tinted, so you cannot compare the leaf colors. Sometimes you can resort to the ribbon width around the "1" if the color registration is good.

This is one of those issues that is difficult to make a final call without physically examining the stamps.
