Paper is yellowed, giving the stamp a different appearance.

Please show the back so we can see the expertizer's mark. Thanks.

Thank you Robert
I ask because I suspect it resembles the stamp of this auction:

But that one has a BPP certificate.
I would not bid on a stamp worth more than $100 catalogue value
without a BPP certificate. And even those are forged these days...

I certainly agree with the statements above.

From many years ago, I still have a specialized collection (dedicated album) of this series, including color ranges for all of the stamps. None of these colors are expertized.

In fact, I don't believe any knowledgeable Germany area collector would buy something described by a seller as a Michel-listed color variety without a certificate or expertizer's mark.

There are no color varieties identified as such in my Germany collection which are not signed, or without certificate/attest.

You buy at your own peril when you guess, or believe what you want to believe, concerning these colors.
