Appendix 1

Some stamps of the 11/07 imprint date exist in two very slightly different varieties, which could indicate a second printing. These differences are listed below. However, in some cases I have not found any variant types. All illustrations on the upper or left hand side of each comparison image are from the same booklet of stamps; those on the lower or right hand side are variant types I have identified. However, until such time as I obtain an example of the booklet which contains these alternate varieties, I am unable to definitely confirm that variant types do not also exist for those stamps.
