Concerning the Venezuelan issue above. I think that I really prefer the photogravure version based on these two images. it seems a much cleaner and crisper print. Engraved is usually very sharp and well defined. This is not the case with most photogravure printings. They tend to be somewhat "fuzzier".

The stamp was reissued on June 14, 1947 but this time using

Presumably it's the noticeable 'edge' to the white lettering at the top of the stamp?

Glenn you are right on there.

Michel states that for 802II the upper frame is brighter
whereas for 802III the frame is evenly toned.

On the other hand Michel states that 802II is braunlila (brown-lilac) and 802III is dkl'brownlila (dark brown-lilac)
The former is obviously darker than the latter so something is wrong here.
Actually the Austria Netto Katalog lists three different colour shades for the photogravure version.

When I responded previously to this post I failed to notice that the designer imprint on the lower photogravure version also appears to have been made larger.

There would have been a technical reason for this, as the top version has the middles of the letter B filled with ink, whereas the bottom version is closer to that of the intaglio printing (but nowhere near as clear, of course!).

Those two German stamps are a fine example
showing the differences between engraved and offset/litho
printings.

mikyh, thanks for posting those examples of different printing
processes.

Of course another name for surface printing would be
typography or letterpress.

That is why this forum is so important since it helps new
collectors understand the various terminology of our hobby.
