Appendix 1

Some stamps of the 06/06 imprint date exist in two slightly different varieties, which could indicate a second printing. These differences are listed below. However, as I only have in my possession one booklet of these stamps and a few loose used stamps, I am unable to give a definitive listing of types. Of the enlargements shown below, the first in each pair shows a stamp from the booklet; it would be likely that separate booklets exist containing the second stamp in each pair.
