Similar to the simultaneous issue of postage stamps, the glossy chalk paper (x) was also used here initially, but from October 1908 one went over to an ordinary, dull, thin (almost transparent) paper (y), which was then changed to a medium-thick, ordinary paper (z) gave way.
Perforated newspaper stamps
The stamps were officially issued only imperforated; Perforations and, more rarely, punctures occur as private types of separation, both on all four sides and only on 2 sides.
