1¼ M burgundy overprint on 3 (Pf) brown with greenish-grey burelage with points up from the second issue.
The first issue was printed over a light-grey burelage which was sometimes very lightly printed. This was difficult to see and because of this, on the second issue it was changed to a greenish-grey color that was more visible. Both the first and second issues were first sold at post office counters on August 20, 1920.

5 MARK reddish on 2 (Pf) grey with violet-grey burelage with points up.

The second issue was overprinted over burelage that was greenish-grey with points-up and with points-down. The third issue was overprinted over burelage that was changed to violet-grey to make it easier to see. Here are examples of both, with burelage with points-up and with points-down. The violet-grey burelage issue appeared at post offices on November 1, 1920.
