BAIN

BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

The vignettes engraved for the 1894 North Borneo definitives were also used for the 1897 set.

For the 1894 definitive set of Labuan, the frame or duty dies of the corresponding North Borneo set were used, but new dies for the vignettes were needed, which would also include the name LABUAN. All these were engrave by Mr Bain.
