Description Originally the 1 krajczar was produced in two operations; no background lines were used, the design was typographed and then the figure 1 was printed. Later the denomination “1” was inserted in the plate and the stamp printed in one operation. In the first type, the intersecting lines portraying the flaps of the envelope are complete; the numeral 1 is seldom placed in the center of the intersection of the lines. On the second type, the intersecting lines have been cleaned away.
