The certificate explains, in part that "these are misprints that were created during the production of the stamps. The weaker red print is a proof, a color sample, which was then covered again by the stronger, lighter red overprint. Under the short-wave light, as well as with all other examination procedures, it can be clearly established that the stamp and the absolutely lighter print, which is definitely beyond doubt, lie atop the darker print, so that a counterfeit of the latter is impossible."
