Hello,

I have astamp that appears to be from this set that is stumping me. It is a 50pa value. I have the olive green, which is listed in my catalogue, but I also have a 50pa deep blue. I can't find out what this may be. Any assistance greatfully received.

Thank you,

Rich

Welcome.
It may be a 'color changeling', green stamp can change to blue if exposed to certain environmental conditions (see https://stampsmarter.org/learning/A...gelings.html )
Can you post an image of your stamp?

Interesting title,
Alexander was not King of Yugoslavia until 1929?

Officially, there was no Yugoslavia until 1929. It was founded as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, and in 1929 it officially became the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.

Therein lies the answer,
thank you gentlemen.

I had all my 1921 as "Prince Alexander"
all were text strings from Stanley Gibbons
that's where I may have picked up that honorific.

Hi, thank you for your thoughts. I've taken 2 photos (on my phone I'm afraid - no scanner), These are with and without flash. The colours aren't true, but hopefully you'll get an idea. I think that some sort of oxidisation is probably the answer...

It looks rather more like 20 than 50.

Agreed.
You have a 50 and a 20

The problems encountered by using phone images.
(and the colour is slate, not deep blue)

Right. I hope you did not think we were being critical.
I almost added, a mantra of mine
"Postmarks can make fools of us all" because the Pmk
did impinge on both value tablets.

If you can afford it, a scanner will bring stamps up right in your face,
and marvel at the intricate work on some of them.

And if you can't easily afford it, look in the thrift shops for an older all in one printer... They have scanners built in and are often really, really cheap. :)
