I need help to differentiate between the 3 colors listed in Scott for these stamps. My old eyes have trouble with shades and your help would be much appreciated.

Would also like your opinion on the stamp on the left. I believe it has been reperfed on the left side as the stamp is much narrower than the other ones.

Opinion.
Not so, just misaligned line perforation, then cut with scissors on one side.
This colour is fragile, hues can depend on how they were soaked and their history.

You're welcome, Mirman.

Your stamps I like to keep multiples and show in declining strength of colours.

Here are my copies, blue black, dull lilac, purple

This image is from a photograph rather than a scan



I believe in the OP scan, numbers 1&3 are dull lilac, 4,5,6&7 are purple, 2 is ambiguous, none are blue black
