Hello,
I wonder if anyone can tell me if these Japanese occupation overprints (Gibbons type 2) on the Selangor horizontal format stamps normally read in one direction or the other, or are both equally common? I know very little about the Japanese occupation stamps so please excuse my ignorance if the answer is obvious.
Thanks for your responses,
Jean-Paul

I believe that they are equally common, but it is nice to have both directions on the album page.

Hello Susan,
Thanks for your reply. I had a feeling you would be the one I would hear from. I noticed that the Scott catalog shows a picture of the overprint reading as it does on my 3c copy, and there is a note below that says it "is also found reading in the opposite direction" on the 3c, 12c, and 15c values, making it sound as if that were not the normal orientation. Thank you for clearing that up.
Jean-Paul
