I have a plate proof on card labeled "133P4." I don't see a 133P4 listed in my 2019 Scott's Specialized. 133 is the Dark Buff version of the Buff 112. I also have a proof labeled 112P4. One is definitely darker, and both appear to be on card.

What is this one?



Here is the one labeled 112P4

133 is the 1880 Re-Issue of 112; the shade has nothing to do with it. Since 112 comes in various shades, it's not a surprise that the proof might also. Plus it's well over 100 years old; who knows where it has been all these years.

I know 133 is the reissue, but you can tell the difference based on color, no? Do you think both of these are 112P4s or maybe I have an "India on card" proof?

please see my comments on your other posts. I am not up enough to tell from a scan which you have, but I am not surprised by the color variation. Jim Lee is the person who among others can best answer your inquires.
