I'm wanting to have both shades of this stamp and I have one but I'm not certain which one I have.
Pictures on line are so many different shades it's hard to determine what's being sold the 241 or 241a and rarely is it mentioned in the listing info.
This is the one I have and it's a very good depiction of the actual color.
Can anyone distinguish whether this is the 241 dark carmine or the 241a carmine rose from my picture?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Cheers, Bill

Based on the image, it looks like you have the carmine rose. For this, it's easier to compare the overall look of the color rather than concentrating on the heaviest inked parts.

The dark carmine would be pretty close to the typical 1937 KGVI definitive color. The carmine rose is close to but a bit deeper/darker than the typical 1953 QEII definitive color, if you have mint examples of those available for comparison.
