Dalmatia continued to use the Trento and Trieste corona overprints until they were replaced in 1921 by similar stamps but with the overprint in a sans-serif typeface, a common cause of confusion. The exception was the 1 corona on 1 lire, which used a 'una corona' overprint from 1st May 1919 rather than the '1 corona' used previously.
