Hi Guys, is it possible that this stamp is a Sg No.593 that has not been overprinted?
Your input would be appreciated
I already have the black and Carmine 2c and the only one that resembles this colour is an overprinted stamp ?

The El Salvador 1906 issue of Pres. Pedro José Escalón is Perf. 11½. I suspect your example is Perf. 12 and a reprint. All reprints are Perf. 12 and the shades of the reprints differ from the originals. Per the Scott Catalog, the color for the 2c is red and black and the 24c is carmine and black.
