Brazil 1898 – Southern Cross (newspaper stamps surcharged)

These are the same as the newspaper stamps of 1890, overprinted with the date 1898 and new values. As before, notice the erratic perforations. The colours are supposedly the same as the 1890 issues but the inks look somewhat different, particularly the lowest-value stamp which appears grey rather than the specified blue.
