Not sure if you have a specific question here or are just making a statement. You have posted numerous posts regarding these German stamps which to a large part cannot be answered because we do not know what watermark is on the stamp and secondly it is next to impossible to identify a particular colour shade based on your scan and the resulting display on everyone's individual monitor which may have a totally different colour setting.

I understand about the color. But the watermarks look like diamonds.

From the picture, I can't see very well, but the first 3 stamps on top seem to look the same.

If so, the base Scott # is Germany #48 10 pf carmine, CV(catalog value) of $1.50 (of course that CV applies only if there are no faults or damage, the cancel is light and unobtrusive, and centering is Very Fine (a technical term))

If you have a block of 4, CV of 11.50 for the basic color.

My 2017 Scott Specialized gives other shades as well.
brownish rose-same CV
dark carmine-$9.75
brownish red-$8.25
rose carmine-$9.75

A Michel catalogue would probably have many more shades.

A quick google search for the cancel on the top stamp....

Probably Siegburg....

This stamp was first issued in 1889, so the population at time of use was somewhere between 4,748 (1871) and 16,190 (1905).
