334 O/og/nh 85, 86 image1898 2c Imperial Penny Postage Map Group of "Muddy Waters" Varieties, with golden brown (used with 1899 squared circle cancel), brown (used with 1899 Victoria square circle cancel), black brown (used with 1899 c.d.s. cancel), deep brown (used with 1899 Stella broken circle cancel) and black (the darkest of these that we have seen by far, mint block of four, with bottom two stamps never hinged). Also a group of 5 other used stamps showing a range of "muddiness". There has long been debate as to what causes the ocean colours to change to "muddy" colours, but the owner explains that this is caused by a reaction of the atmospheric hydrogen sulphide with impurities in the white lead present in the ocean inks. A lovely group. (Scan a) (Scan b) (Scan c) (All Scans)
