Have you tried putting something heavy on the "colored background" (I
tend to use a thick book)?  This may reduce or eliminate the shadow.

Have you tried reducing the wand (or select by color) tool's threshold
when selecting the black background?  I would guess that the postmark
color and the background color differ at least slightly.

A couple of the raw scans of the stamps might be useful for analysis.
