Comments

There should be an extra year line for 1953. Besides the long top 5 and the short top 5, there is also the curled top 5, probably the normal 5 like it is on the 1951 and 1952 issues:



Hello. I really think that there shouldn´t be 4 different rows for the year 1953; I think it is only filled die errors. Can you state your source? Thanks.
Hola. Realmente pienso que no deberían ser 4 líneas en el año 1953; me parece que es un error de cuño empastado, y no una variante. ¿Podrías mostrar cuál es tu fuente? Gracias.
