Made printings of the stamp 0,50F Marianne de Béquet on TD6 presses

Introduction

In this article, I will supply known dates for all printings and all parts of printings of the stamp 0,50F Marianne de Béquet (the precise definition of these two terms was given in the introduction to the stamps of sheets). Let us remind once again that this information is known thanks to current and past members of the SOCOCODAMI association. Thus they may evolve according to (possible) future new discoveries of collectors.

    Printings 37 and 38, for which I showed a dated plate corner for each printing day, raise a problem. They use the same form cylinder AM on two different presses on the days of 15, 16 and 17.10.75, which is physically impossible. There is thus a mistake somewhere in the dates. We may also note that the press TD6-1 printed red stamps 0,80F Marianne de Béquet from 23.9.75 to 5.11.75 with the form cylinder M, 3rd printing, which is another contradiction for the use of the press TD6-1 at the above dates.
