The last stamps of the series were released on June 20, 1995, The Scott catalogue has assigned 17 major numbers (Scott #1228-1252) with several minor numbers varieties in perforation, watermark and printing method as well as for several stamps which were issued in booklets.  The Thai catalogue that I use (published by the International House of Stamps in Bangkok lists 43 stamps in this series printed by a number of different firms, the majority by the Government Printing Bureau of the Japanese Ministry of Finance. Most of the “extras” seem to be color shades.
