Catalogue numbers based on Scott Catalogue, year 2007 edition
Last updated on December 12, 2007

Where the catalogue value is higher for a used stamp than a mint stamp the higher value will apply only if the stamp is clearly postmarked from a time period close to the date of issue, and the cancellation appear to be a genuine postal cancel only (not a revenue cancel, a fiscal cancel, forged cancel, a favour cancel, a CTO or an illegible cancel).
