These overprints originally came from the postal archives of the Bechuanaland postal administration which was responsible for applying the type 4 overprints. They were removed from their U.P.U. sample books and were acquired by Robson Lowe. Therefore, most are without gum having been "sweated" off the pages and some have small faults resulting from their removal. Most have British Philatelic Association certificates.
