Brunei – Rare Watermark Variety

10/04/2012     Brunei

The Multiple Script CA watermark began to be used in 1921. It seems likely that there were at least two dandy rolls in use at any one time, with a reserve roll being employed when the normal one was withdrawn for maintenance.

The watermark exists with one or other of the letters C & A omitted from the individual impressions. It is possible that most of these occur from the reserve rolls, as they have only been found on certain issues from the early 1940s to 1951.
