There are five types which can be easily identified by a process of elimination as follows;
1. If the outer designs at left and right are cut away, it MUST be Type V (Scott #35);
2. If the design is complete at the bottom AND sides, it MUST be Type I (Scott #13, #31);
3. If the design at bottom or top center is recut at one or both, it MUST be Type IV (Scott #16, #34);
4. If the design is none of the above it MUST be either Type II or Type III as follows;
a. Type II is complete at top and over the right “X” (Scott #14, #32);
b. Type III is NOT complete at top and over the right “X” (Scott #15, #33).
And to restate these in Scott order;
TYPE I – Complete design at sides and bottom;
TYPE II – Complete at sides and top but not at bottom;
TYPE III – Complete at sides, but not at top or bottom
TYPE IV – Complete at sides and RECUT at top or bottom center curved line, or both;
TYPE V – Complete at bottom but cut away at sides.
