2 and a Quarter Anna Postage Stamp Issues-Cohin Maharaja Stamps-Illustrated

Below are some of the 2 Annas and a Quarter (yellow-green) issued by the Cochin Maharajas. Examples shown are of Sri Rama Varma the 3rd, Kerala Varma the 2nd and Ravi Varma. The detail shows the striking difference between the recees printing in London by Perkins Bacon and the litho printings of Associated Printers of Madras. The clarity and colour of the recess printed stamp is very obvious.
