Article 84: Russia 1880s 7 Kopecks, and a statistics example

I show here the four major types for this stamp. There are two issues dvivided by perforation, and both are common. I gloss over any perforation variations in this article and concentrate instead on using this selection of 48 stamps as a statistics example (more about that in the statistics section), and show various aspects of this stamp, as shown in the quick links listed here. All of the selections from the stamps shown here are from 1200 d.p.i. scans that have not been reduced. This is an important point: all of the high definition images are exactly the same scale. Quick links: main page / Stamp list for all 48 / Group One: Stamps 1 to 8 / Group Two: Stamps 9 to 16 / Group Three: Stamps 17 to 24 / Group Four: Stamps 25 to 32 / Group Five: Stamps 33 to 40 / Group Six: Stamps 41 to 48 / Selections from sections of the stamp: crown for selected stamps between 4 and 16 / 19 to 32 / 33 to 47 / eagle for selected stamps between 6 and 20 / 21 and 34 / 35 and 47 / Numeral seven showing various types of background shifts and wear of plate for selected stamps between 1 and 16 / 18 and 29 / 32 and 40 / Selections from stamps with various line breaks / background shifts / Lower legend selections.
