The 1/2 Centavo Manuel Belgrano 05c1E

This is the lowest value of the series. There are several printings of this stamp, as shown below. The stamp below left is from the earliest printing. The plate is clean and the design is crisp. The stamp below right is a reddish purple, and the impression is not as clear. Here are quick links to the 1/2 Centavo issue pages: 05c1E / 05cNGR / 05cNOP / 05c2

Here is yet another early 05c1E, with a slight variation on the reddish purple shade.
Below is a back scan showing the watermark.
