|Suit:||3 of Diamonds|
|Country:||Baden (German States)|
|Name:||Bold Numeral Value, color error|
|Description:||Color paper error. It is almost certain that a press operator mistook the printing plate of the 9 kreuzer inverted for the 6 kreuzer. The 6 kreuzer was printed on the green paper, and the 9 kreuzer was normally printed on rose colored paper. This unused example seems to have undergone additional color changes over time. It was in a safe or strong room, when fire broke out. High temperatures apparently caused the change of color from blue-green paper, to a yellowish or pale green. The Grand Duchy of Baden was among the first to accept an interchange of correspondence at fixed rates between Prussia and Austria.|
|Color:||Color Error, Black ink on Bluish green paper|
