Article 82: UK Castle High Value Definitives Revisited

I am updating information on this site about the UK Castle High Value Definitives. I previously authored article 18, with incomplete information. Below are highlights showing the difference between the Harrison and Enschede printings, and I show a page with highlights from all of the values in both series that I hope will help you identify them. I also have several pages for postmarks. Quick links: main page / comparison of Harrison and Enschede printings / Harrison values / Enschede values / regular postmarks / curly edge postmarks / large cancellers
Below is a detail from the 2 Pounds Harrison Printing (Issued March 24, 1995, with the exception of the 3 Pounds value, issued August 22, 1995) This issue includes all possible values: 1 Pound, 1 Pound 50, 2 Pounds, 3 Pounds, and 5 Pounds.
Below is a detail from the 2 Pounds Enschede Printing (Issued July 29, 1997) This issue includes the four higher values only: 1Pound 50, 2 Pounds, 3 Pounds, and 5 Pounds.
