This Research Paper lists the printing periods for each plate, and also lists the sets of plates that were at press together for each printing period.

The coverage includes all 1¢ and 2¢ flat plates used for sheet stamps, as well as rotary press plates used for coils of all denominations and for 1¢ sheet stamps.

Booklet panes plates are not included, since they are in Research Paper #8. The coverage is from 1908 to 1923. 148 pages.
