Identification Characteristics. See Abbreviations for Tagging, Paper, Printer and Format types.
 
  1. The design area of the 2c green vending stamp is 20mm x 16mm, while the deep green type is 20mm x 16.5mm.The single bar tagging varieties on the 2c type PB-02 were not intended, but were created by wide 4 bar tagging on the 34c stamp next to it, crossing over the perforations or straight edge. The bar is on the left or right of the 2c stamp to the left of it, depending on the shifting of the tagging, to the left or right. Click here to see illustration.
  2. The single bar on the bottom of 5c was not intended, but was created by the wide tagging bar on the 34c stamp below it. Click here to see illustration.
  3. Variety: "Storm" on the 2c-5c-34c booklet of 1986. See illustration.
  4. The 34c CBN sheet stamp with the purple sky has been seen with different shades, including a virtual blue sky. However, the stamp is distinguishable from the BAB printing in that the vertical tagging is narrower on the Sheet stamps. This makes the horizontal length of the untagged portion on the sheet stamps 20mm and on the BABC booklet stamps 19mm.
  5. The 36c AP Lithographed stamp has the 4 bar tagging applied over the 2 bar tagging. It is not known with either tagging applied alone. The two styles can be seen easily under the UV lamp.
  6. The 37c Coil on Rolland paper is very scarce in mint condition. Less than 200 are known to exist. Copies were included in some of the 1988 Annual Souvenir Collections.
  7. The 38c CBN lithographed stamps have purple windows, while the AP printing has dark blue windows and a heavier black inscription in the word "Parliament". However, there are shade variances of both printings.
