Greek Hermes 5 lepta on the left is number "5" and right is number "6" is that error maybe in specialized catalog?

Just an inking problem, not an error in my opinion

The stamp is from the last printings (Greyish-green).If it does not have a control number on the back it is from the 1880-86 printing.Many flaws in this printing as in the previous 1875-80 printing with the control number.Looks like there is a scratch where the blue arrow is.Typical flaw in these printings.Perhaps a better pic in-focus to see more...

A better picture (scan) would be a plus, although perf12's blow-up helps bit.
