Note the creamy white color of the envelope used for PS-21. Although PS-20 and PS-21 were sent in fulfillment of the 1885 order for 20,000 envelopes, the printer changed color and paper stock during the printing. However, the green and dark green of PS-1 may be considered different intensities of the same color.
