|Notes||S1111 is know only with Solid Tagging. S2222 was found in February, 2004. Plate S3333 was found with both Solid and Mottled Tagging in mid June, 2004. S4444 was reported in November, 2004 and has both Solid and Mottled Tagging. Both S3333 and S4444 with Mottled Tagging have Red Stripes on the Flag that glow either Orange or a Bright Orange under Longwave UV light. The stripes are dead on the solid tagged stamps when viewed under UV light. More reports are solicited on the tagging varieties. Plate # S1111 with Mottled Tagging apparently does not exist.|
