Scott says miniature examples of this set exist, but doesn't mention size for either the regular or miniature issues. I've got a set that seems small, but not really sure which. If anyone has dimensions for this issue, I'd be appreciative. Thanks.

For those of us who use Michel or SG, do you have any more info on dates of issue, values, etc.?

Here is my B32
Not sure I can put my hands on it right now.
Perhaps the miniatures taken from the catalogue differ in clarity?
Mine may also be a counterfeit.
(1922 2000r green, 2000r rose, 4000r rose 6000r green)

Rod - Think you've hit it with the clarity. My B32 is less clear overall, and missing the shading dots in the arms. Mine is approx. 29mm along the base of the frame.

In the SG SOTW 2018 ed. the set is listed as SG262, 2T red Worker & family (35x42 mm); SG263, 4T Clasped hands (triangular, 57 mm each side); SG264, 6T Sower (29x59 mm).
The 2T green (SG261) is pictured, but no measurement mentioned.

And according to Michel catalogue stamps from this set in smaller format are fakes.

Thanks 22 - that definitely makes mine the miniatures. A full sheet of all 4 values of the minis is on eBay (item #193123172951).
Interesting and unusual, but way too pricey for me!
