Re: 1929 Health stamps

Dear HarcourtB This is an interesting question. My theory would be this: That they used up the excess of Cowan paper from the 1927 printing of the two shilling and three shilling Admiral issues. Both issues were similar sizes and even the plate set up was in 8 rows of ten also the comb perforation machine used on the Admiral issue was the same. Having used up the excess paper ordered different sized paper to finish the printing. If the theory is correct it would suggest that the latter printing of the Help Promote Health issue, might have had different sized paper from the original issue. Do the buffer bars show up on this issue, if so this printing would be more likely to have had the correctly sized paper. What do you think? Kind Regards Kaka
