Good Day Everyone, I found a fewbof these postcards in collection that I bought and there's such a contrast from the normal cream color I thought maybe this could be the gray paper variety. I used a few references and it seems like it's a possibility. What do you fellow collectors think? Thank you, Jonathan

Stampavalanche, Before spending the money, it might be wise to read through some of the past threads on the UX27 varieties and to hold off for a few days to allow some time for other postal card experts comment, and be reminded about the pitfalls of comparing scanned colors/shades on differing equipment. You started one of these threads yourself!

Have you measured the dimensions to determine the press type? Have you compared the paper directly with a known UX27D?

I second John's opinion. Comparing color on line is an iffy business.

Especially when the camera images in question clearly show lighting variances.
