comment Although the versions of the name are different both dies were cut by the same hand, both are retrograde and both occur only on TN. Die 02A01 is a common die with stamps concentrated around Colchester suggesting local production supported by the red-brown matrix of some TN. However, the presence of one at Nijmegen and the very mixed TN fabrics supports import.
