Spot the Difference #173; John Fox of Ewloe

This is really unexpected. There must be several hundred John Fox Special labels filling up drawers, envelopes and shoe boxes in collectors houses all over the world. I am not going to argue that there is a different die in existence to enable a print of an arctic fox as well as the quick brown variety, but I am going to be searching for the Arctic fox version from now on. Thanks to Nick for spotting and sending the images,.

    A nice thought, but if you look carefully at the ‘Arctic’ fox, you will see faint brown colouration. So I reckon they had just run out of brown ink & this one was missed by QC if that was even a thing back then. Probably others out thete in the tundra.
