Both Maxa and the P.Z.P. give lists of all possible perforation combinations. Maxa desn’t use the 0.25 measures because, as he writes, the perforation machines were sometimes ver old and produced imperfect and uneven perforations

The typing mistakes in Maxa’s article make it difficult to list all perforations exactly In the following table, all known perforations, according to Maxa and the P.Z.P. are listed On the vertical columns, the perforations of the vertical sides of the stamps are listed On the hon7ontal lines, the perforations on the horizontal sides of the stamps are listed Capital letters indicate perforations that have already been registered until now
