In May 1900, a second printing of Marianen overprints of the German Krone/Adler Issues came into use. This second printing featured the same “Marianen” overprint, but at a steeper angle (56°) than the earlier printing (48°).
The 56° Overprints are the more common variant, and are valued as such.
A single 10x10 sheet of MiNr. 5 II b was printed with an inverted overprint.
