PRS Blue Cachet
Above: two examples of B608
The colors are the same in all B608 covers.  Any differences here are because of scans.

Note the small maroon, red or blue rubber stamp that was applied to collector's envelopes after the flight was over.  Collectors wishing to have this rubber stamp applied to covers, sent their covers with SASE to Mr. Beck.  Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp and returned the covers to the collectors using their SASE. Keep in mind that not very many covers have this stamp.  Mr. Beck applied the rubber stamp to any covers the collector sent in, not just CREW covers.
