|Imagine you have two mint 41p stamps from Northern Ireland WITHOUT margins.
How do you tell the difference between DGN410.1.1 sheet stamp from 1993 (with Cream Paper) and DGN410.1.2 Booklet stamp from the DX17 N. Ireland Prestige Book from July 1994 (DP217 and 218) also with Cream Paper?
Both, of course, have 2 8mm bands with Yellow Fluor.
Note: Change to white paper was not introduced on this issue until August 1994 and is very scarce so I would certainly notice them (if they exist at all).
If anyone has a sure fire method of identification I would be happy to be told it.
