EFO 1965 Kennedy 30s brown shift

This EFO was described in an auction as having three colors shifted -- yellow on top of the head, "brown" moustache, and ultramarine tie upward.

Upon closer examination, however, I now believe that only one color is shifted: the brown JFK downward. For the simple reason that the brown coat touches the 3 of the 30s denomination, whereas a normal copy wouldn't.

The color of the moustache is actually pink like that of the shadow on the JFK's left ear (the shifted pink color also affects the nose and the upper pair of the double eyebrows). The brown shifted downward left behind the yellow, pink and ultramarine.

In any way whatsoever, this EFO is unrecorded in the IPPS EFO catalog and, according to the consignor, quite difficult to find!
