Admiral plate census

Plate census - 1¢ green

In column 2 of the table, the heading "PO" stands for Printing Order. Beginning in February 1911, near the end of the KE VII period, until March 1915, the printing order number was hand punched on the plate, usually near the plate imprint. In March 1915, it was engraved on the plate in the pane selvedge above and/or below column 9 or 10. If a plate was used for more than one printing order, the old number was defaced and the new one punched in. In the table, only the number that is not defaced is listed.

Beginning with the 2¢ carmine in November 1915, the "printing order number" consisted of a number that indicated the stamp denomination and issue format (sheet, coil, or booklet) and one or two letters that indicated the printing order. The number did not change and the letters were not defaced. The PO column of plates with this new numbering scheme is greyed out.

In the three "Upper" and "Lower" columns, the size of each item is indicated by a letter and number. The letter indicates the configuration:

- ► S = Strip
- ► B = Block

The number following the letter is the number of stamps in the strip or block. If there are multiple items of the same size, the size is in parentheses, and the number preceding the parentheses is the number of items. For example, 4(B8) indicates that there are four blocks of 8 of a certain item. S1 indicates a "strip" consisting of a single stamp. B100 is a complete pane.

A grey cell indicates that the item does not exist. A light blue cell indicates that no material from the plate was reported in this census.

Notes:

- Plates 43-44: the plates consist of two panes. There are no imprints in the bottom margin.
- Plates 71-72: the bottom plate imprints are inverted.
- Plates 141-170: the lower panes have lathework in the bottom margin and plate imprints below the lathework. The plate imprints were trimmed off the panes issued to post offices.
- Plates 163-164: there are no plate imprints on the upper plates; however, the plate number was punched on the upper right pane.
- Plates 169-170: also used to print the 1¢ yellow.
- Printing order number: hand punched on plates 1 to 96; engraved on plates 97 to 128; set to "901" with one or two letters appended on plates 129 to 170; set to "903" on endwise coil plate 2.
- In his 1982 book, Marler lists the following plates whose existence had not been reported: 39-40 [p. 117], 103 [p. 144]. No items from these three plates are recorded in this census.
