I have noticed a minor change that occurred, probably during rather than just after the A/91 prefix run - the prefix and serial numbers are set lower, presumably to avoid being printed over the underlying text. A couple of scans attached to illustrate the point. All A/92 notes and all so far seen beyond that have lower set prefix/serials.

You're right! I just scrolled through all of the examples in the date listings, and the gap between the date and serial numbers has been reduced so that the number falls into the blank portion of the note.

Nice find!

Here is the A91 from the date listings
