The two piasters stamp is the other stamp within the set which has the inverted watermark variety as the half piastre one. In this case the variety is more difficult to find with only a handful of examples known to exist and none mint. Blocks are rare to come by with the one illustrated below being one of the few known. The purpose of this stamp was to pay the rate of all letters going overseas for the 1st oz.
The 2 piastres stamp, paying the foreign letter rate on an entire letter, postmarked Larnaca, 3 April 1884 to Trieste with an arrival postmark of 10 April 1884. A very late usage of the stamp. The watermark is visible when the letter is held to the light.
