In Scott this stamp is "deepblue" and the overprint is "blue"
In Michel this stamp is "dunkelblau/darkblue" with two color variants for overprint:
a=schwarzblau/black blue
b=blau/blue
I think is Mi#26b.Have you another stamp for see the difference with mine?
Thank you

Sorry, but from the scan, this looks dark blue. Note that the ink is translucent. Blue stamps of the issue make the overprint color look bright while on some other values, the dark blue color looks blackish blue because of that color contrast.

See:

while the overall scans are slightly bright than yours, the blue overprint is clearly a brighter color here and more translucent than the dark blue.

Thanks hy-brasil for these links.
I found that the image of my stamp is not in the right light (the pictures are done with the mobile phone)
I took 2 pictures with the other stamps in the series and I think it is better to see a difference in the color of the overprint.

The 2kr in the first post is lightly inked, the others are heavily inked, resulting in a stronger color. The color still looks dark blue to me by your scans.

Since you remain doubtful then send this to the BPP expert Dr. Gruber, but read all their rules and be aware of the minimum charges. That plus registered shipping would probably be more than the value of a blue overprinted 2kr.
