1905 Yacht Issue Color Proofs

Proof printings of the 20-, 45-, and 60 Heller values of the unwatermarked Yacht Issues were printed in several trial colors. The proofs can be distinguished not only by the colors, but by the addition of a dot before and/or after 'DEUTSCH-OSTAFRIKA', in the same trial color as the frame. The paper is also the standard white instead of the yellow (20 Heller) or red (60 Heller) that were used for the issued stamps.
