Issue II #3 (2 Gr. Green City Hall) Genuine Types
No. 3 type 1
The box around Grosze is broken at the top, between the G and R (and part-way across the top of the R.)
The right inner frame line stops 1 mm above the tree, but a vestige remains next to the tree.
The left inner frame line stops at the roof line, so that the left-most building has no border at the left end.
Miasto Przedbórz has a slight downward tilt,
so that the foot of the M is about 0.7 mm above the frame line,
but the foot of the final Z is only 0.35 mm above it.
The inner frame line around the lower left 2 is not continuous. Instead, there are two lines which partially overlap.
No. 3 type 2
frame line below Przedbórz has a 0.1-0.2 mm break between the P
and the R.
The right inner frame line goes down to the tree leaves, about
2.5 mm below the top of the tree.
The left inner frame line goes down
the entire length of the building, stopping about 0.5 mm above the M of
The left foot of the M is only
about 0.7 mm from the left thick middle frame line, and the foot of the final Z is
about 0.65 mm from the corresponding right frame line.
There's a short line (about 0.4 mm long) below the lip of the left 2.
No. 3 type 3
The frame lines are similar to type 2, but Miasto Przedbórz has been
shifted to the right, so that the left foot of the M is about 1.2 mm from the
left thick middle frame line, and the foot of the final Z is 0.4 mm from the corresponding
right frame line
It looks like someone has trimmed the bottom of the “órz”,
so that the ó has a flat bottom and the foot of the final Z has almost disappeared.
There is a dot between the top lines of the Z and E of Grosze.
Just above the right denomination tablet, the outer frame line is connected
to the wide inner frame line by a short horizontal bar.
