Not sure why they didn't come up on the last post but these are some of the nicer ones from the collection.

I'm not too sure what the dots signify, I'll check tomorrow if there's a legend or something in some of the documents.

I note that the 12d is a plate proof as well as the copy of 10c black brown. They both have SPECIMEN overprints.
