Hello, I'm very new to stamp collecting. Would like to see if anyone knows anything about this condition on a stamp. Looks like it has been printed with two different colors. Picture 1 was taken with phone. Picture 2 and 3 was taking with microscope. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

It is damaged (faded) possibly due to light or some other environmental exposure.

It is known as a changeling, caused by being exposed either to the sun or some sort of chemical being in contact with it or soaked too long in water.

Either way, it is ruined.

The ultramarine shades were very susceptible to fading from ultraviolet, so it looks like that corner was exposed to the sun.
