I am new to these discussions and have a handful of questions or queries which hopefully someone out there might be able to cast some light on.
My previous post was on the 1940 2 1/2d cylinder 4. This time it is about the 1948 Olympic games 6d showing the HLP in the bottom right corner. The specialised catalogue indicates that there are two states. HLP showing and then the later retouch.
I have quite a few showing the retouch and I have noticed that there seem to be two different retouches.
In the attached pic I have shown the HLP on top followed by 3 blocks showing the retouch the second and fourth show the same retouch however the third is definitely different.
The way the 'P' has been obliterated / retouched is different in the middle block and the 'L' seems to be slightly different also.

Would welcome any thoughts.
