Scotland's Country stamps - now by Enschede

The Robert Burns miniature sheet is printed by Joh Enschede Security Print in Holland, and so the country definitives are new stamps. The new stamps are shown below alongside examples of the existing sheet stamps. The most noticeable difference is the smaller silver head and thinner figures of value. There are some shade differences, most notably the very red shading to the lower left corner of the 50p.
Note the labels on the images, as the Enschede stamps are in a block of 4!
