| /Full sheet with Waterlow imprint to base. Provides a clear visualisation of the plate format and the five types, plus all the listed flaws. Some separation and the side selvedge missing.
| /The Waterlow Master Plate Proof part sheet for the 3c Rodo Monument issue. Various notations and authorisation initials in the margin including: "Central vignette correct for 2,000,000 stamps of 3 cent value = 20,000 pulls", "Plate and colour OK". Note unusual and very decorative engine-turned frame in the lower margin. Both large and small security punch holes throughout.

The 3c value showing partial file copy inscription only. Both blocks with security punch hole. Interestingly, although the printing was done on 1st December 1941, Bolivia did not release the issue until 1942, possibly because of delays due to logistical issues during WWII.

| /Engraved 'thin 5' variety, distinct from the very similar litho stamp by the thinner font and squarer base to the numeral. By far the scarcest of the Quetzals, even more so as a multiple. G1 records one mint block known and no known pairs. Disturbed gum with about 25% remaining. Pencil notation to reverse, two short perfs to the left hand stamp. A rare item.
