Notes:
1. Quantities of issue reported are not confirmed and must be in error. Based on relative availability  in the marketplace, the low values probably had a printing in the range of 25,000, with no more than 3,750 for the 16g.
2. Postal use was very limited. Most cancelled copies are CTO.
3. FORGERIES: See 1908 ASKEFIL & T postage dues for descriptions. Forgeries of the two high values are rare as few unoverprinted stamps were available to the forgers.
