NOTES:

#613 Apparently, BEP and US POD records are not clear on why the 613 was produced.   It was apparently produced by utilizing rotary sheet waste and run through a flat plate perforation machine at a perf of 11, but this is not clearly documented.   

The 612 (rotary, perf 10) was produced in a quantity of 99,950,300 .  Apparently the stamp was very popular and they wanted to get out as many as they could resulting in the perf 11 Scott #613.  How many were produced is not clear.

The #613 is listed in Scott with italics and is much more rare than the 612.  Apparently no unused versions exist.  Given the proposed production method, it is highly unlikely that there were many produced.   

The #613 was likely produced out of the 99,950,300 quantity of printed rotary stamps, just perforated differently
