B. Overprint proofs
The overprints described here were applied on 10 Bani fiscal stamps printed especially for this purpose in yellow-brown or blue-grey, imperforated. Each row of 10 stamps had 4 overprints of type a (Yvert&Tellier 14-17, Michel 6) and 4 overprints of type b (Yvert&Tellier 18-21, Michel 7) alternatively. The two last stamps in each row caried no overprint.
In each row:
Nr 1a + 2b overprint Blue, Nr 3a + 4b overprint Yellow-brown, Nr 5a + 6b overprint Red, Nr 7a + 8b overprint Black.
By cutting these rows it is thus possible to obtain 8 different overprint proofs + 2 unsurcharged proofs.
