This first set was catalogued much higher than the later stamps.
Whereas the later stamps were rarely on the market and catalogued low. I have adjusted accordingly.

happily price them (and the previous issue) with used prices lower than the first issue, despite not being able to provide an image !

Hiscocks added the following note:

Note. The above stamps are difficult to illustrate clearly because of the security pattern.
                The basic design is very similar to the 1940 issue below.

Hiscocks added the following note:

Note. Nos 18, 19, 20, 22 and 23 were surcharged for postal use in 1951 (SG 886-890),
                but were not known to be used telegraphically so overprinted.

 

Here are some examples that at least illustrate some of the colours:

Ovp-1 Ovp-3 Ovp-2 Ovp-4
1951
5c on 5c, 10c on 10c, 20c on 1b, 25c on 25c and 30c on 2b

5c on 25c and 10c on 1b

The 50c blue and 10b yellow-orange do not seem to have been overprinted.
