I know I posted these before, was told these were carmine, but these seem different.

#1 and #2 seem to be the exact same color. #3 and #6 are more reddish. #4 and #5 are similar. Can anyone designate the exact colors and numbers to the Scott catalogue numbers?

Unfortunately, not really. I can only guess at what color I'm seeing. This is due the differences in how your scanner, computer and monitor see and displays colors, add my systems differences and my age and how I see color.. you can understand why I'd be guessing.

Barg, re-posting this is not going to give you any answer about the color of these stamps. Littleriverphil is correct - colors can not be reproduced correctly unless you have a standard that was scanned with the one in question.
My suggestion to you is to contact a local stamp club in your area and take your examples to one of their meetings. Your question needs to be answered with the stamps in hand. Addresses of local stamp clubs can be found at http://stamps.org .

Peter

The differences in shades of your stamps may be due how they've been handled by the post office, and the series of collections they've been in since they were mailed.
