Default T205 Collins White Elephant vs. Yellow Elephant

For a while now, I have been researching the T205 Collins Mouth Closed variation. I have found that this particular card can be found with both a yellow and white elephant.

It seems as if the white elephant is much more common than the yellow counterpart, but I wanted to get a better idea by asking the board.

Please post your T205 Collins Mouth Closed--either white or yellow elephant.

My current example:




Not mine but another example of the yellow counterpart (sorry for the small scan):



White elephant for comparison, also not mine:



Thanks in advance,

Turner Engle

Mine is white. FWIW, my other A's cards also have white elephants.

It appears the yellow is more visible in the yellow elephant collins. The printer may have over laid the white elephant with yellow ink causing this. Since the "Yellow Elephant Emblem" seems to be found on Pied.25 backs only so far I would say this is another Variation to add to the set. If anyone can provide proof or reasoning why it is not I would love to hear what your thoughts are.

BTW Turner great job on the Collins research and glad to help you out with what I can. Hope to hear from you soon buddy. Be well.

Hi Turner,
I haven't checked my other A's, but this "yellow baseline" Oldring has always been one of my favorites... The Elephant isn't yellow, but multi colored.... Hope you are well. Brian

Great observation, Turner! Just further proof that this set has more discoveries to offer. I look closely for these types of variances and have never noticed this one before. Both of my Collins cards have the white elephant. As with the other previously discussed (but yet unrecognized) variations, I think this one has to go on the checklist.

Turner, good job with this one. I have checked all my A's cards and all have white elephant. I have seen some with a bit of yellow in the elephant like the card below but not the whole thing.

I wanted to give this thread a bump. Does anyone else have a yellow elephant Collins hiding in their collection? Post 'em if you got 'em.
