Additional Comments

This overprint was produced on a typeset plate, in serif lettering. There is considerable variation in letter size, shape, measurement and spacing observed on a number of genuine overprints. Bartels even goes as far as stating that ‘there may be as many variations as stamps in the sheet’.
