Albania – Unlisted Color of 1967 Rose Series 25q

Examine the following scan below of two 25q stamps from the Albania 1967 Roses Series (Scott #1027 – 1034).   The 25q is Scott 1030

The stamp on the left is the correct color, the stamp on the right seems to have color missing.   This could be a printing error, or, possibly the result of a chemical change in the stamp

Albania-Roses of 1967, 25q color variety


The red/pink of the rose seems to be correct, although the green seems a bit lighter on the bottom.

Can’t say for sure, but I do tend to think this might be a printing error.  In my inventory I have cataloged it as 1039-EK.CV  (Color Variety).

Any comments would be welcome.
