Do we have for this issue 3 or 4 different chops?

Or in other hand, what types we have here?

I could only find three different types that were consistant over both 2f issues. However, like most people I only looked at the characters flagged up by Kerr.

There are certainly different inks used as you show in your image.

Very nice! Thank you for sharing! I missed the left Type B. If you have any copy to share please let me know! :)

Wonder what was the reason to use three (possible four) different chops? Also some of them are unknown to be ever postally used.
