Coat of Arms 1898
Regular StampsThe stamps of this issue were sold out in the post office after being on sale but a few days; used on cover are therefore hard to find.
The 2c. exists in shades between bright carmine-red (2) and the listed color brown carmine (1), but this variation is due to the effect of the climate.
The amount of shift between the two impressions on Scott #49a varies considerably, giving each copy an individual appearance.
