abbreviation and a number, and references covering more than one

machine would have either the authors last name, abbreviated or

an abbreviation that is now in general use.

plus mark (+) indicates an update to the latest reference.

Column 4 - Year(s) or EKU LKU - The dates the postmark has been

observed either by a cancel or a reference. EKU - Earliest Known

indicates the earliest date listed is an installation date and

not necessarily the EKU.
