I have search the forum for a thread on this question and I could not find one. I noticed the plate blocks for the 8 cent stamps have 2 methods of printing the plate number. The more common one is the blue and gold plate numbers. The least common is the red plate numbers. Does anyone know why there are no three plate numbers with blue, red, and gold?

Any information would be appreciated.
