Queen Victoria Straits Settlements Stamps

Look what just arrived in my mail box.  A lovely set of 4 stamps from the Straits Settlements era from various Queen Victoria definitive set.  Seriously, I can't really tell the difference between all the various definitive especially for the King Edward VII sets.  They all look the same to me.  Anyway, here is a scan of the stamps:

I believe the top row (from left) is a 1882 Queen Victoria Definitive 1(b) 8 cents and 10 cents. This is followed by the carmine rose "THREE CENTS" surcharge on 32 cents.  The last stamp is a 1892-1899 Queen Victoria Definitive III 3 cent brown colored stamp.

Do let me know if I got my stamps correctly defined.
