    Okay, I know that colors are one of the most difficult things to determine, but this stamp is really trying my patience. I even enlisted the fashion sense of my daughter. She states, in the images I've shown her off the internet, that this is a Scott 537b, but I don't know. I've seen so many color variants that I'm just lost. To me, it's violet with a hint of red, but of course it's a lighter color. I've attached a scan without any enhancements to it (other than cropping it). What are your opinions? 537? 537a? 537b? 537c?

    For me there are three things in stamp collecting with which I have difficulty coping. 1. Watermark detection; 2. Distinguishing between typographic and lithographic printings; and 3. Distinguishing color varieties.

    Having said that, your stamp looks violet to me. However, I think the quality of one's vision affects how we see colors. I have early stage cataracts and I need higher light levels to see colors accurately.

    Consequently, I avoid collecting color varieties.

    Hi Notional,

    I have to concur with Don on this one. I see no hint of any red in the hue of the stamp thus rendering deep red violet, light reddish violet or red violet improbable.

    I think I'm going to run with violet. The only reason why I think I saw a wee bit of red tinge is when I saw a violet one online. It looked more like a lighter one with a bit of red. Thanks folks!

    Great opinions fellows, I'm sure all have proven a help to 'notional'.
    I also agree w/ Don on his 3 difficulties RE: Stamp Identification.
    Especially, I have problems w/ distinguishing color varieties...What a pain it is for me in the back-sides...Guess I'm lucky to still actually properly discern perforations...Ha!
    Happy Summertime to all,

    The red violets definitely show some red especially the deep red violet 537a

    Nice copies of all 3 varieties...I like all 3, but then I have been accused of having
    strange taste.

    To see what Werner is saying compare the Red Violet image and the Light Red Violet image. Look at the lower left corner of each stamp image and note the slight inclusion on the corner perf and then follow the bottom perf line to the eighth perf, a noticeably short one. Both images have the inclusion on the corner perf and the perfs are the same on both images. The two images are of the same stamp, except the color of the bottom image appears to have been lightened.
