Chemically altered?

The pair of stamps here, Scott #4418 photogravure on gold foil, are interesting. The stamp on the left displays all the colors and words to include the value. The stamp on the right is missing all the colors and is a bright shiny silver in color. The design can be seen, but none of the words in the lower portion.

Is this a chemical changling?

Just curious

I am surprised no one responded. The answer is "Of course it is chemically altered." I have some household products that will do this easily. Someone want a silver stamp that is suppose to be gold?:D
