In 1964 Southern Rhodesia was renamed Rhodesia: upon becoming independent in 1980 it was renamed Zimbabwe. (SG)

Notes:
1. Russia #1 (10 k blue and brown, imperf) catalogues at 4,000 and 400 (SG 2001). Russia #2, issued 1 month later (10 k blue and brown, perforated) seems to be very similar and is priced at only 32 and 25p for mint and used. I'll settle for a #2 for now - knowing my luck, and with the prices I am prepared to pay for stamps, I would probably end up with a deperforated #2 anyway.
2. The SG1 is Scott's #2, the 1d black, issued the year before Sc#1.
3.
Roman States. Gibbons numbers the paper variants of the bajocchi black on grey and lilac separately as SG1 and Sg5; Scott lists six more precise paper colours as 1 though 1e.
