Variations on Gold Medal Stamps.

Stuart from South Wales sends this picture of two sheets of GMW01 obtained from Royal Mail Edinburgh.   These are from the Edinburgh and London sheets - I believe the Edinburgh is on the left.

As can be seen there is much more yellow in the left-hand sheet, these scanned side-by-side.

I don't have the London sheet yet, but the other 5 are quite close.  Solihull is greenest, Attleborough has the palest (grey) background, Edinburgh has the darkest background. There are also slight variations in registration, with the right-hand point of the picture not always touching the gold lines at the right. There is also a slight variation in the vertical positioning of the image, sometimes extending beyond the perforations.
