Temporary Number


Currently Documented Version Characteristics:
Version I: [no signature] [no seal] [no title-caption in lower margin] (example above)

Design History:
Each supplemental set design is based upon at least one of the designs in the primary series. It consists of two basic parts, the background image and an overlay image. Occasionally, the background image may be enhanced with highlights included on the overlay plates, but here the third color is used only on the overlay design.

For wfx8, the silhouette of wf39 was used as the background image. Unusually for the supplemental set, the overlay image for wfx8 shows a species not otherwise represented in other designs in this series.

Species Illustrated:
Background: Dahlia, Dahlia hybrid cultivars

Overlay: Spiderwort, Tradescantia sp.
