The ACSC states "Date of Issue: 9 December 1913 officially, but placed on sale at some post offices on 8 December 1913".

"V"s
These are the solid coloured portions into which the segments converge or meet.
There are therefore two segments and two "V"s on each of the four sides of the stamp.

Plate 1 a pale shade of rose-carmine, much paler than the other three plates. This is due to the shallowness of the impression which the plate received from the Master Die.

The marginal inscriptions are sometimes so faint as to require a glass to read them.
