Notice the darker color of the waxy buff glazed paper used for the pink shade. Pink envelopes making up PS-24 have a range of shades from a pretty rose pink to a badly faded pink. The carmine shade of PS-26 is a distinct "burgundy" color, more easily distinguished from the red of PS-28 by examining actual envelopes rather than electronic scans. Natural indirect sunlight is best for identifying the colors of the 2 envelopes.
