Hi Timm

I've looked at the images for a while. The only thing I see is that the width of the 1 colon, including perforations, seems to be wider than the 40 or 50 centimos. From a cursory measurement, the images themselves seem to be the same. However, I cannot be 100% sure from the scan.

Color of overprint can be black or carmine.

That's very strange Timm!

These aren't listed in my SG or Scott catalogues with these overprint colours.

2006 Scott c117-c119 listed as 40c carmine, 50c carmine & 1p black but above the listing states telegraph stamp overprint in black or carmine. Bit confusing. Rest of the story?

I purchased this piece about 40 years ago. The stamps are overprinted in the wrong colors.
The note that came with the set stated that only one sheet of each were printed (to knowledge of the time) and that only a handful were known on cover or piece.
