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, and here the third color is used only on the overlay image.

For wfx9, the silhouette of wf38 was used as the background image. Unusually for the supplemental set, the overlay image for wfx9 is the same species used for the backround image. Although the overlay image appears at first to be an entirely new composition, one of the bud spikes is very similar to one in wf33.
