Eyecandy: Four Times the 50 Rubly Overprint on Charity Stamps

 

This block of four features:

– two canceled (to order) stamps

– two mint stamps

– the more common Erivan “m” cancel that is most of the time found on CTO (canceled to order) stamps

– an overprint flaw: the “5” of the first overprint seems to be missing (actually it is very weak), nevertheless, this makes this item definitely more interesting

  1. Dr. Ray Ceresa says:

    The stamps are genuine,(or digital copies of Genuine). The later stage broken ‘5’ is well known and originally listed by Tchilhirian & Ashford. This is an example of a counter surcharge c.t.o. at the counter. It is listed in my early “The Postage Stamps of Russia, 1917-1923”, volime 1 circa 1982 and in due corse to be included in a Forgery Guide of the HH overprints.
