Return to home page


This section provides pictures of the imprimature sheets as an aid to plateing. The pages show the sheets as they exist, (sometimes in sections 5 rows at a time), and these pictures are in black and white. Also given are details of the missing impressions, (with links to these items where they have been traced), and details of the colour, watermark possition and if the impressions show an ivory head on the rear.
