Scott Specialized Color Guide for United States Stamps
Stamp collectors face a major challenge in identifying a stamp's color and shade. What is "lake, "carmine rose" or "pigeon blood pink"?
This guide now helps you meet these challenging questions head on.
Actual color chips are affixed to the guides in this book so you can lay your stamp next to the chip and determine which color matches your stamp. A special tool is included to allow you to focus solely on the color without being disctracted by the design.
