The light Olive-Green was printed in 1966 and the Olive-Green was printed in November 1973. The purpose behind this was to cater for increased usage following the introduction of a 75c registration fee.
The Olive-Green was printed on a whiter paper than the light Olive-Green, and the UV reaction is orange-brown on the front and grey on the back.
The $1 painting definitive replaced the Captain Cook 75c on April 24, 1974.

The light olive-green is the scarcer shade, the availability of either depends of what the dealer has in stock, sometimes dealers may have them mixed together. In the ACSC (Australian Commonwealth Specialists' Catalogue), both are valued at $2.00, so anybody can own a pair.
