Dominican Republic Various Color Shifts

Just finished sorting and mounting my pile of Dominican Republic stamps (not to be confused with “Dominica” by the way…   Found lots of Dominica mixed into my various piles I have acquired over the years).

Pro Tip:  The easiest way to sort these out is noting the fact that they speak Spanish in the Dominican Republic (the island of Hispaniola along with Haiti on the other side).  Dominica – English.

A number of minor color shifts showed up in my small collection (322 stamps in total so far)

These early engraved stamps with multi color printings are many times a sure thing when looking for color shifts.  I noted a few with arrows.

The 1946 waterfall issue, again in multiple colors, gives us many interesting shifts along with heavy/light inking varieties

This 1950 Hotel Jimani issue has a nice showing of a little extra inking on one of the buildings on the right hand side of the stamp.

On of the only stamps issued in 1951 for the Dominican Republic for the 500th anniversary of the birthof Queen Isabella I of Span.

Note how she is shifted compared to the background color.

And finally, this bird stamp of 1964.  I only have one copy but it has quite a color offset in the background.
