Runny InkI had a bit of an alarming moment last night. I recently purchased a 1924 KGV Southern Rhodesia 1/- on a terrible scrap of paper. Last night I placed it in water to soak it off. Imagine my horror when the blue ink started to leach into the water!!! I quickly grabbed the stamp out of the water, and it was fine. Phew! The blue is just slightly muted now. I know there are some issues with which one must deal very carefully, but I had no idea the ink on this stamp was so volatile. Anyone know anything about this issue??
Stay Stamp Crazy!!
