  1. The above listing is only intended to be used as a Deegam to SG Specialised comparison. Please let me know of any errors you spot. It is NOT intended to be a complete listing of the Deegam Handbook.
  2. I do not include short or inset bands unless this is the "normal" state, as there has to be a limit to the listing. For a complete list of varieties of each stamp you will need to purchase the Deegam Handbook obtainable by sending an email to: Douglas Myall
  3. All are issued as Sheet stamps only unless the "INFO" column shows any of the following; Items with "BP" are stamps found in Booklet Panes only, "CL" are stamps found in Coil format or "MS" are stamps found in Miniature Sheets only.
  4. In addition the "INFO" column will identify the different paper brightness varieties from the sheet issues of the "Byfleet" era of 2003-2004. Bright Paper will be signified by "TRB", Intermediate Paper by "TRI" and Dull Paper by "TRD". Change to Royal Mail Specification paper is signified by "TRB".
  5. Printed (PRT) by (E) Jon Enschedé en Zonen, (H) Harrison & Sons, (Q) Questa Colour Security Printers, (W) Walsall Security Printers, (JW) John Waddington Security Print, (D) De La Rue or (C) Cartor.
  6. Printing methods used (next to the value) are "(G), (L) or (R)" representing Gravure (or Photogravure), Lithography or Recess respectively.
  7. Phosphor bands (PHOS) are printed vertically on the face of the stamp and are visible under UV radiation or at an oblique angle to a light source. Stamps are printed with: (2B) 2 phosphor bands, (CB) centre band, (LB or RB) left or right bands, or on (PCP) phosphorised paper.
  8. The use of "(Y) or (B)" in the "PHOS" column indicates "Yellow" or "Blue" Fluorescence. This is only used if more than one type exists within any one variant.
  9. The ""U", "4mm" or "2mm" notations in the "INFO" column are to differentiate particular varieties of certain Enschedé stamps where U = Unvarnished, 4mm = 4mm Varnish and 2mm = 2mm varnish. More detail on Enschedé stamps can be found in
    4. Enschedé Definitives
  10. Images are representative only and the Date shows first year of issue.
