See the main printing varieties
Although variations in shades of the adhesive labels of the different issues are normal, in this design there is possibly one of the widest shade ranges we have encountered. Stamps with great variations in the background color, in all the brown shades.
Differences in the format, type of paper or design have not been investigated; but these are not believed to be different manufacturers or reprintings, and only the small expected vertical or horizontal displacements of the design are present.
In some labels we can appreciate clouds or shades in the background design (left image), that usually do not appear in the clearest labels (right image).
