These entries ignore variations in the brightness of phosphor and type of pva gum. The dates are when I understand the sheets were printed for items previously in production by De La Rue (which will be rather earlier than issue dates) or an issue date where it was an item that was new during this period. Information on earliest known actual availabilty dates will follow if and when I get any. Help anyone?
