The PrintSheet

1st Series
640 On Second Series

The 1st series contained a mixture of 'experimental' layouts of both copper plates and steel masters in layouts of 320, 480 and 640 on.

All denominations of the second series were derived from 640 on steel master plates with the  exception of some early 320 and 640 on copper plates for the 2d Die II.

Because multiple post office sheets were produced from the printsheet, and because a single rotary plate was involved,  philatelists identify specific post office sheets as follows:

640on AB
480on Could only ever be issued as single panes.
320on A
