What is the difference between an Unassigned and Assigned Countermark?

An Unassigned Countermark is a Countermark which has been generated but has basic attributes only defined by the Issuer at this stage:

    • Reference Text
    • Font Type
    • Branded / Top-left Text Selection
    • Dot Colour


An Assigned Countermark is an Unassigned Countermark which has had the following attributes defined by the Issuer at a later stage:

    • Attachment Data (Image/PDF/URL)
    • Access Restrictions (Public/Private/Registered)
    • Location Restrictions (Region/Location/Radius)
    • Expiry Information (Units/Value)
