1883 Issues

In 1883 a new definitive set of six values was issued.

Seven different perforations are known to have been used. All values exist with perf.9½ and perf.10; these two are the most commonly found. Perf.10½ is scarcer, while 9, 11½ and 12½ are relatively rare. Stamps with traces of the watermark BRIEF-MARKEN are worth significantly more than those without.
