1972

Ship design. Two different sizes exist - Only Tk.1 orange, 30 1/2 x 25mm on a white paper. It was not part of the initial order and that explains the difference in size. All the others are 29 x 23mm on a cream colored paper with the writing heavier in appearance. Many printer's waste items have been sold as errors. They are on a variety of dark colored papers and often have stamp images printed on the back as well.
