Hey! Hope all is well.

I have a question regarding this 681 on the right.
To me it looks like a different color.



Thanks

Difficult to judge on computer screen, but I don't see much difference.

It's somewhat darker, but shades such as these must be seen in person. Too many variables to be seen on a PC screen.

The right hand stamp looks more toned to me

I agree with the others on making a call with a scan. The lighting is terrible, too. Having said that, Lake brings a bit of a purplish 'cast' to my eye which I do not see in the stamp photo'ed here. In this era, there were variations in ink batches, so a little difference in color between stamps is to be expected. In spite of what I said about determining color/shade from a scan, this just doesn't look like there is any lake in it.
