Appendix 1

At least two different printings exist of stamps of the 03/09 imprint date. I have assumed that the booklet I have listed as QLT B12d(1) is the earlier, as the example of that booklet I have to hand was, I am advised, purchased on the opening day of the Symposium. Booklets of QLT B12d(2) have been available more recently. Most stamps from these two printings show at least a minor difference in placement of the text or the company logo, but in most cases this requires close study and copies of both whole booklets to compare the stamps against. The enlargements shown below show these differences as well as possible considering how small they are; unless otherwise stated, the only detectable differences are these very minor differences in placement. In all cases, stamps from QLT B12d(1) are shown at the left of the enlargment and stamps from QLT B12d(2) are shown at the right of the enlargement.
