img_20190818_210528.jpgI am now coming to the conclusion that 3 papers do exist with regards to the multiple crown watermark namely :- Cream papers : Whiter papers : Fibrillous papers .

After excluding the halfpenny type values, it would seem that the majority of values between 1d to 1/6d all seem to have the three types of papers mentioned in my articles so far issued.

This is not just a coincidence but a fact.

Here are some 3d values again for comparison, comprising of cream and whiter type papers including fibrillous ones .img_20190818_205718.jpg

If some of the viewers have come across any of these variations that I have discovered and illustrated, I would like to hear from them on any of the following subjects.

Cream and whiter papers issued post 1962 relating to the 1d-1/6d Wildings.

Fibrillous papers (FIB'S) issued post 1962 Wilding phosphors.

Thanking you in anticipation,

It's only by using a UV lamp that I have been able to detect these variations in these multiple crown Wilding papers .

May I suggest that you read my recent thread by the name of " Ultra violet radiation of multiple crown Wilding definitives " in order to get a better understanding of these stamp papers .

Thank you .

One of the fundamentals in the production of postage stamps is the paper that they are printed on, without it, stamps as we know then would not exist, so paper is just as important of the varying shades and types of ink used to print them and cannot be ignored when noticing differences found .

The third paper that I have nicknamed " FIB'S " is one of those differences and should be taken into consideration for acknowledgement by the philatelic fraternity .
