From around 1980 the stamps pictured were gradually replaced by stamps printed on phosphor coated paper with no bands visible. These form a complete range between catalogue numbers SGX924 and SGX994 a total of 69 stamps. All stamps to this point were from the photogravure printing process. These were followed by stamps printed in Lithography by Walsall, Questa and Waddington and collectively this litho series came into use in the early 1980’s continuing through to the early 1990’s. Some have phosphor bands, others do not, but all distinguishable from the glossy and slightly waxy surfaces. These litho issues consist of 43 stamps between SGX996 and SGX1058. Collectively there are 112 stamps. These are available separately or combined
