SIRMOOR-Indian Princely States-The 1892 Stamp Reprints of the First Issue-Illustrated

Illustrated below are the reprints of the original stamp issue of 1878. MAde about 1891 the reprints were issued in 1892 to supply stamp collectors but little interest was shown at the time and the stamps were used postally within Sirmoor. The reprint had the same colour and value as the originals (a 1 Pice deep-green also exists as a reprint) but can be identified by the outside edge that mimics stamp perforations, the printers copying the designs from a stamp dealers catalogue. The two details below compare the original and the reprint.
