Appendix 1

Six stamps of the August 2006 printing exist in two types, with those I presume to be of the second type showing the photographs "zoomed in" onto the central image. In addition, Types DUN124 and DUN125 show an improvement in colour contrast.

Appendix 2

Two stamps of the November 2006 printing exist in two types, with those I presume to be of the second type showing the photographs "zoomed out" from the central image. This is in effect a design reversion from the second type of the August 2006 printing, but the improvement in colour contrast remains.
