The first issue to appear in this new format was the
1954 royal visit.
The printsheet consisted of four post office sheets, each, a single pane of 8 rows x 10
stamps. While no imprints appeared in the margins, the usual pip marks and other
guidelines can be found. Positions of the post office sheets are labelled in the
conventional Australian philatelic manner, A thru D.
All stamps using this layout were perforated 14.25 x 14.
This is the printer's printsheet view and corresponds to portrait (upright) stamp
Imprints had been abolished from November 1952 and so do not occur on this layout.
