This post is a work in progress as I list and update specimen examples for the various 2nd sideface values over time.

Geoffrey Adams produced a table showing the different Specimen types (Queensland: beyond the Standard catalogue, Stamp Monthly, 1982, p.47). I will update this table for the 2nd sideface issues as I come across new or additional information
