Then why did it take 28 years before the differences, and the fact the three were double-printed, become general knowledge to the hobby? I well remember reading about the occasion in 1980.

Tongue in cheek, perhaps those who finally put the knowledge into the spotlight of the hobby print media wanted to "want" until they had finally gotten both versions of the three.

If this is indeed true, I can well understand and relate to their hesitance. These men were collectors first and foremost, and hobby reporters second!
