I have put together some factors that would help me consider this to be a Switzerland, "75a"

What are your thoughts?

It looks yellow to me also.

You were given a clear answer about another stamp here by perf12:

which said that the color variety listed is black under UV. Check that, please. Further, you may not know where postal district VII was (I don't offhand), but if you bothered to look at a map, the cities mentioned are nearest the border with Germany and Liechtenstein. Fribourg certainly is not.

Good or bad, did you have a chance to UV it? If black, good; if not, was it just yellow?

hy-brasil,

I do have access to UV light. Is the stamp suppose to be PITCH BLACK? It certainly got a lot darker. I will upload a picture tomorrow.

Thank you.
