Epargne. Perf. 13. Watermark, V. and crown. It is impossible to give all the minute differences between the genuine and the forgery. The neck of the Queen is shaded all over. There is a neat coil of plaits at the back of the head.
Lithograph. Perf. 13 (very small, and far apart). No watermark. Whole of design very poor and coarse. A large portion of the neck unshaded. The hair at the back gathered into a loose shapeless lump. Twentyfive in sheet, 5 X 5.
1868. July. Five Shillings, Blue and rose, on white.
Same type as last, but printed at twice, for the two colours. Perforation and watermark as before.
Same type as last, perf. 12 or 12 1/2.
