As I have said before, I'm fairly new to collecting Australian stamps, but when sorting through some stamps I obtained, I came across these two…according to the Gibbons catalogue I have they are both 2203a at perf 11( measured several times). Only one is more bluer on the value and lighter on the flower itself…as this stamp been reissued at another time…only I cannot find it in the catalogue.

I guess it would never make it to a catalog. Only thing wrong is too much red ink on the first one. Maybe the plate did not get wiped enough?
This stamp would be interesting for a specialist though

Thanks for response PeterT4522, I'd be interested if anyone else has seen or got anything like this.

Both used stamps, exposed to varying amounts of sunlight or soaking off envelopes. Difficult to point to a printing variation.
