No thins. All in all good perforation of the stamps ( looks like the 30 cents is shorter – mis- perforated. The 1 $ stamp has a short tooth ( might be a perforation reason since it doesn’t look like a torn tooth ). The lower right corner has a repair or just a paper remnant with a proof-mark “L”. Slight creasing.

The right lower corner of the 50 cents stamp has a slight rose toning ( probably has been pasted on a Red-Band-Cover ). The 4 cents val comes in a colour variety, brown and olive.
