Special Handling issues

The 25¢ denomination QE4 was issued first, in 1925, in a deep green shade.

The other three denominations followed in 1928, together with additional printings of the 25¢ value, all in yellow green (QE1, QE2, QE3, and QE4a). All of the 1920's printings were wet printings as was the practice at the time.

The 10¢, 15¢ and 20¢ values were reprinted in 1955. They were dry printings as was the practice at the time (QE1a, QE2a, and QE3a). Used examples are scarce to rare. There are no known used plate number examples of the dry printings.

There is no dry printing variety of the 25¢ denomination as it was not reprinted in 1955.
