Aniline Rose: For 2/3rds of the printings. Showing clearly through to the back of the paper.

Rose: The last printing(s) were a pale rose creating the impression that the plate was worn in an attempt to  influence the decision to move to new plates.

This was the last time Perkins Bacon plates were used. The next decade was dominated by DLR plates, some of which, were not issued until after federation in 1901
