  In order to meet service needs, a set of 〝Double Carp Stamps〞of 2nd Print was released in 1969. The stamp also takes a double carp as the central design as the first print of 1965, but delicate decorations were added as the background.

  Since March 1972 several reprints have been made with the original plates, design and coloration being similar to those of the original print. But paper used is the yellowish 76`lb watermarked stamp paper with more fiber.

  The paper used for the 10.00 and 50.00 stamps released on March 8, 1972 is whiter 76-lb watermarked paper with less fiber.

  Since 1973 local-produced white 76-lb watermarked paper with least dyed fiber has been adopted for printing. And since August 2, 1974 electrical comb perforating machine has been used, perforation being 13 1/2×12 1/2.
