1885. HadCrut4

Three claims for the global historical surface temperature anomaly of the January-to-December calendar year 1885:-

1st claim.  “The anomaly is between -0·61(±0)ºC and -0·14(±0)ºC.
2nd claim. The anomaly is between -0·51(±0)ºC and -0·24(±0)ºC..
3rd claim.  The anomaly is between -0·40(±0)ºC and -0·26(±0)ºC..

The monthly series of  HadCrut4 version 4·0·0·0 entails the 1st claim. The annual series  of  HadCrut4 version 4·0·0·0 entails the 2nd claim. The annual series of  HadCrut4 version 4·0·0·0decadally smoothed by the application of a 21 point binomial filter entails the 3rd claim. Alternative link for HadCrut4 version 4·0·0·0. Question: The anomaly for 1885 is between {(what number of degrees centigrade?(±0ºC)} and {(what number of degrees centigrade?(±0ºC)}?.
