TD27 is listed in red in Scott, as shown at the bottom, below.

A new color pastel (or light red) variety is shown below.

The other two are clearly new (speaking of shades, you can color me green with envy), but are you sure this one isn't simply faded?

I obtained a number of copies, all in the identical light shade. No variance at all so I doubt fading.

Hi Jim,
It is hard to compare two separate scans/images; for a relative comparison we really need both stamps in the same scan. What jumped out to me about the two images posted is the delta between the paper colors. With stamps in hand, is there really that much of a difference between the color of the paper?

But if they were all exposed to the same environment (assuming you got them all at the sane time) I would expect the same degree of fading, so wht does them all being the same negate fading?
