Hi, going through my Star & Crescent issue today I was reminded of this questionable one: a 7.5pia second printing (Perf 10.75, Scott 614b, Isfila 1145) that is printed much cruder tan any others I have from this issue. So crude I wonder if it could be a postal forgery, or some kind of reprint?

Shown at right, with several "normal" ones from same printing. Thanks for any help.

Hi azurite1,

I'd guess this is just the result of overinking.

Thanks Perf 12

It seems "old threads" are of no use

bit better response with a new thread in the world classic stamps category instead of resurrecting older threads like this.

I still think the key point here is that this example is overinked!
