The blue one has the #2 watermark and the paper looks bluish to me. The red one has me stumped. It has the #1 watermark( a number 5) the paper looks white? Judging the print quality is difficult without having another to compare it to.
Thanks in advance,
Greg

Are you sure it's not watermark 'e' shifted to the side a bit? That would make it one of the Scott #9 shades.

The "5" has a flat top to it. it doesn't angle up. There are also three parallel lines forming a corner. I tried to photograph it but no luck it appears only briefly before disappearing as the fluid evaporates. I don't fill a dish as it gives me a headache. I just put a couple drops in the recessed top of my gram scale which is black. here's a diagram as seen from the back of the stamp. The corner of the lines is rounded a bit.
