Appendix 1

At least two different printings exist of stamps of the 10/06 imprint date. The most obvious difference between these two printings is the serial number on the booklet itself, which is complete on WLG B12m(1) but is entirely missing on WLG B12m(2). All stamps from these two printings show at least a minor difference in placement of the text and 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 WLG B12m(1) are shown at the left of the enlargment and stamps from WLG B12m(2) are shown at the right of the enlargement.
