The sequence and numbering of designs in this record seem to relate to a crossed-out number sequence visible on the designs of SD 1705/MS1759. Some of the designs in SD 1705/MS1759 have different annotations to those found in this record, so it is advisable to consult both sequences for the fullest picture. As this record contains the original artworks it is assumed that SD 1705/MS1752 and SD 1705/MS1759 represent a re-numbering of the original number scheme.
