Hi Mark

I have a 3 cent Susan B Anthony Scott #784.  It is actually Red not deep violet or rose violet.  Could you please give me your expert opinion on this stamp.  I have attached a scan.  Thank you


Because the change in color appears uneven across the face of the stamp, it looks to have been caused by a reaction resulting from contact with a strong chemical agent.
