P162 is very similar to the 1924 design P156. The difference between the two postcards is that P162 has a thicker central dividing line consisting of three thick dark green lines separated by lighter green lines. P156 only has a single thin green line. In addition P162 is larger than P156, now measuring 148 x 105mm.
