In the other parts the leaflets are identical.



During the production, the developing tank had only two variations. The developing tanks with serial numbers white numbers and serial number red. The red number are with 6 and 5 digit, the white numbers only 5 digit near to 33XXX. These have the inferior part a bit lower than those with white numbers. From a more careful examination it seems that the two fusions are different in the dimensions that in some other aesthetic particulars. Probably after a first series was prepared a new mould for the fusion.
