Most of the Admirals I've purchased up until these two the seller had stated if it's a wet or dry printing but these were not marked.
Hoping I've got this right the first is a dry printing and the second one is the wet printing.
Can someone please confirm that I do have wet and dry example here?

Cheers, Bill

Yes, they are both types. The best way to tell is by the width comparison.

Dry is wider as it does not shrink.

Best way to tell is to get out your ruler. The dry printing will be 18mm wide and the wet printing is 17.5mm wide.
