eBay auction


Right now agstamp is offering two sets of stamps on eBay. One is the 1884 issue and the other is an 1888 reissue. ( Scott 31-38.)I don't know a thing about the reissue.

My reference catalog is Lyiapin, 2009. It lists the stamps issued in the 1884 set in several color varieties. If it lists an 1888 reissued set, I am missing it. Bear in mind that about all the Russian I know is the alphabet .

Therefore my takeaway is that the difference between the 1884 stamps and the 1888 stamps is the color difference. Is there any other thing I am missing?

Slightly larger overall dimensions and slightly different perforation (14 1/4 x 14 3/4 against 14 1/2 x 15).
