Hello,

I just bought the stamps attached to this thread and the statue of liberty stamp in the middle of the three has more white than green. Is it just faded?

It is not unusual to see some color variation. Sometimes it can be due environmental effects. Does the rear side look similar?

These stamps were printed in huge quantities under (almost) wartime conditions. Some variation will occur in long press runs. The center stamp looks like it had better plate-wiping to remove more of the ink in the background areas.
