This first set was catalogued much higher than the later stamps.
Whereas the later stamps were rarely on the market and catalogued low. I have adjusted accordingly.

No watermark. Perf. 12 x 12½
1932 Type 3, Hiscocks page 362
Type 3, H14 (though this is actually an image of the later type.)
Hiscocks says that the 1932 issue is similar to, but different from type 3.
The difference is that the security pattern on these is blue, but pale blue on the later series, and were by a different printer.

H12 (3) 5c brown 10.00 7.50
H13 (3) 10c green 10.00 7.50
H14 (3) 25c carmine 15.00 8.00
H15 (3) 50c ultramarine 20.00 10.00
H16 (3) 1B black 50.00 25.00
H17 (3) 2B olive-green 70.00 50.00

Hiscocks added the following note:

Note. The above stamps are difficult to illustrate clearly because of the security pattern.
                The basic design is very similar to the 1940 issue below.

My note: I have had to illustrate these with the later type shown below since nobody seems to have ever seen any of the Waterlow printing.

                but were not known to be used telegraphically so overprinted.
