Type 1 photographs are the most desirable and valuable of the four photograph types because of their vintage and originality. Type 3 photographs are commonly reffered to as "Wire Photos".
Many Type 4's were issued after 1970, either for latter-era publication of earlier original images or for the general public consumption. Duplicate negatives are produced by taking a photograph of an existing original photograph thereby creating a second negative that is of inferior quality to the original.
