Lion Head (Part II)

Usually the distance between edge of the right lion head to label edge is 6mm (both top and right).
But sometimes the distance will be variable to 7mm, or less than 5.5mm, that we can see belows.

More than 1.5mm the distance difference between two labels of top of lion head to upper edge of label.
The right distance difference is 1.7mm.

Because the lion heads moved upper a little, and imprint 'Singpore' lower a little, that got them overlap.

Another interesting is the cancel is blue, not black. It is from BRAS BASAH (百胜楼).

Why Kangaroo close FRAMA

Big Red Dot caused by leakage of ribbon.
Blemish on digital 9 and zero.
National name 'AUSTRALIS' and machine number missed print.
Combine problems 1 and 3.
Australis closed all FRAMA machine since 2003 due to high expensive maitainess cost, and few people used it. I guess another problem is spare part is shortage.
Couple of years ago, Denmark also stopped Frama.
Till today, only Swiss, Iceland, Aland, Liechtenstein, Vatican, Malta are still running.

White IN Fish

Here we can find white line(horizontal) in HongKong Fish ATM. Because the wave(heavy blue) printed on the 'white line', so we can be sure the issue caused by printing slight blue on white paper as backgrond.
And there is heavy line under the white line, between white line and heavy blue line, the blue is a litter stronger than original background.
Legend Image.

All the prblems happend on the same postion, see above ATMs.
