You can check the Durland plate number catalogue and find that #'s 563, 564, 566, 567, 568 & 569 were also printed on "special paper".  This was paper that was normally used to print booklet stamps.  There are references to it in the earlier literature.  Booklet paper dried in the opposite direction that the paper for sheet stock dried in.  For the vertical orientation that #s 563, 564 & 566, the stamps dried slightly wider.  For #s 567, 568 & 569, the stamps dried slightly taller.  While not scarce, putting together a collection of all six stamps may require some searching.  Steve
