The Facit Catalog distinguishs between booklet "H 8I" and "H 8II".

Booklet "H 8I" contains stamps from regular sheets, that are stapled at the margins of the panes into the cover. In booklet "H 8II" the stamps are in in vellum-paper envelopes, and these were stapled into the cover.

Different types (H 8I A till H 8I E as well as H 8II A till H 8II G) are defined according to the combination of the face values of the single stamps. The same concept is used by DAKA and Þór Þorsteins, however, with different numbers.
