Re: China 1949 UPU stamp

HI Dave, in my posting from Fri Sep 14, 2018 5:33 am I show both types of the overprint. For the NW94 only two types of overprints existing.

If you are able to post here a better scan I can tell you for your unoverprinted stamp if it is genuine or not.

Re: China 1949 UPU stamp

Re: China 1949 UPU stamp

The stamp at Kelleher has a strange white paper impression and some surface scratches, please be careful it's not a forgery (removed overprint), better ask for a certificate of authenticity from the CSS to be safe.

Re: China 1949 UPU stamp

HI Dave,

the scan is too bad to do any opinion. In general new findings are always very dangerous!

Re: China 1949 UPU stamp

HI David, it's an interesting variety, it happens only happens once in a sheet of 60? I never noticed (or let me say, I never really keep and focus on this stamp).

Re: China 1949 UPU stamp

I saw these shifted surcharges few times, but never took any 2nd look on it. This stamp is in general bit "strange", it was called up to the early 70s mainly as bogus and only in recent times (around 90s) accepted as fully as regular issued stamp. But I can't remember to saw any non philatelic inspi...
