Catalogue Note

On one sheet of 120 the overprint was shifted to the left on the right-hand pane of 60 by exactly one stamp. This resulted in the final column of 10 lacking the overprint. There is a complete top row in the collection of Queen Elizabeth II. Of the remaining potential nine examples, three strips and four pairs are recorded, leaving two unaccounted for
