Initially the back of the covers was blank and this first printing is known as TYPE A.
Soon the covers appeared with an advertising slogan, super-imposed over a tobacco plant and an oval.:-
"Why do we give you these inserts?
This is TYPE B with the word more bisected by the oval and realise is with an S.
This wording and design must have been considered too small and a new bolder design was introduced. TYPE C has the same wording but the word more is outside the oval (20s) or circle (10s). Realize is with a "Z" in Medium (All) & Postcard size (Most).
TYPE Dis the same as TYPE C but additionally, inside the cover under the number in the series, is printed:-
"Kensitas flowers are washable and the colours are fast."
This note should not be taken literally.
There is only one known cover variety and it is:-
1st. series Medium size - 36. Nicotiana Cover Type A. The language of flowers should be:-'Contentment', it is found with:- 'I soothe you', this variety is not scarce.
Without their covers the flowers are anonymous.
