The difference between Printing I and II is the color of the paper and gum.
In cat. Scott and Michel are also mentioned drawing differences between the stamps of the 2 series.
I failed to determine the differences for these 2 values. The stamp on the left is "Printing I".
Thank you for help.

First stamp: on the left dots in between legs. Stamp to the right dark snake like line against right leg of man.

Second stamp is as far as I know only indentified by paper color/gum color. No obvious design features.

Thank you. I don't have the Printing I stamps in front of my eyes and in Michel the arrow didn't help me much.



Now with your help, everything is clear.

A few more words by Michel would be helpful, in this case.

Not a great arrow placement but it's pretty clear to me that the top of the "peak" in Cupram's image has a prominent area of white on the right-hand example compared to the left-hand example.

The image of these stamps in Cupram's original post clearly show the variety, to my eyes. The one on the left has a much whiter "crotch," vs. the one on the right that has more shading in that area.

shermae-my first look at the images in Michel's catalog was also the white area.
But under a sufficient magnification it is no longer so obvious. Johan's "snake like a line" sign near right foot is much more obvious.
The image posted is Printing II.


I hope someone has a good resolution image with the stamp Scott #162 or 181a.

Looks more like a boomerang.
