You are here:  Home  ->  Identifier  ->  Varieties  ->  2nd Issue Single-Sided Proofs

This page has scans of regular stamps, proofs with different background colors, and proofs with white (no) background color.

Note: the scanned background colors are not accurate on some of the "regular-issue" stamps, and see the note at bottom of the page regarding the "no background" stamps.

Note: Some stamps in the right column have had the background removed with Photoshop, because the original scans did not have a white background. As such, these are not necessarily accurate representations. Consider them more as indicative, rather than definitive.
