Here is the material that was added or modified for this update:

  1. List of Stamps Arranged by Country

  2. Appendix II: Labels, Seals, Advertising Stamps, Etc.


    Circular label with wavy edge. Man in center holding a very large turtle by its tail. Inscribed "Newark Tortoise Shell Novelty Co." and "Best-Hold Brand". Date unknown.


    Two similar Cinderella sheets with two stamp-like labels on each sheet. One label seems to commemorate the Sapporo Winter Olympics of 1972 and the other label seems to commemorate some type of Spanish soccer championship. One sheet has a yellow selvedge and the other sheet has a green selvedge. Two stylized turtles are in the upper selvedge of both sheets. The sheet with green selvedge has two additional logos in the upper corners. These do not appear on the sheet with the yellow selvedge.
