The official cover at the top, posted at Parsa, in January 1990 has the Type 2 slogan and the lower cover, posted at Lalitpur has the type 3 slogan, both were used in February 1990
Type 4 of the  9th. World Food Day postal slogans was circular, and the only example I have is on a registered letter sent from the Surkhet Post Office, dated February 1991. This may well have been an error in the date slug and should have been 1990.
