Some stamps of the second major type of the 03/06 imprint date exist in two or more very slightly different varieties, which could indicate additional printings. These differences are listed below. However, in many cases I have yet to obtain sufficient information about these stamps to distinguish the separate printings; and until such time as I obtain a booklet of stamps from each printing I am unable to advise which types are found in the same booklet.
