As the values were depleted new ones were prepared on the new watermarked paper; the figures on the A25 and A26 are much thicker than on the 1925-26 set – there are no serifs on the “1” or “4.” The steamer (A31) is nearer the right of the design, and is much smaller than on the 1926 designs.
The 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 16 and 20 are known to exist on thin paper.
