I continue to describe the Exporta high values from the Chase correspondence.
I show four distinct color varieties for this stamp.
Here is a range of specimens. The control on color, perforation, and paper manufacture for this issue is, to the delight of specialists, poor. Besides the main page, I include a page with two blocks of four, and a page with vertical strips.
These stamps were used after 1988, and throughout the 1990s. Each link and image thumbnail points to a larger image of the stamp. Quick Links: 1c / 2c / 5c / 7c / 10c / 16c / 18c / 20c / 21c / Standard Rate / 25c / 30c / 35c / 40c / 50c / 90c / 1 Rand / 2 Rands / 5 Rands
