|1 dinar print plate layout|
At first, the press sheet consisted of two sheets of stamps, each having 100 (10 x 10) stamps. According to Fleck it is also possible it had four sheets of 100 stamps each. In order to plates fit the paper better one column in one of the sheets was filed away. In this way one sheet of stamps consisted only of 90 stamps (9 x 10). On the lef side of the sheet traces of the first row are clearly visible. Varieties and types listed in the table below appear on both sheets of stamps.
