Re: Fakes

Hi Tom, fake are not only at eBay, you can find them everywhere... The only safe way might be to ask other qualified collectors if the stamps are ok. If the value of the stamps you want to buy exceed some certain value it's better to let them expertise. Not sure if the CSS offer this service for MLO...

Re: Kerr 69.5-15 vs. Kerr 69.28-37

@George, if the The error in the Hu-lan listings is that the T123A as I recall is not correctly illustrated. The overprint for that set is not shown at all! How does the 2nd overprint looks like? You have any scan you can share with us? Chinese Postal Rate books shows for Northeast China between 194...

Re: Kerr 64.1-18 ==> 124.X

I studied ~15 covers from „Ho Li” for Kerr 64.1-18 all cancelled at LienKiangkow. Can you show me a single cover from Kerr 64.1-18 not cancelled in LienKiangkow which has also not a pure philately purpose? The problem I see for this cover the “pure” philately purpose. The postal rate does not match ...

Re: Kerr 69.5-15 vs. Kerr 69.28-37

Thank you for your post! If the collection still in sale, please let me know? The Harbin dealer covers you can put aside without worries, they don't have any value, they are mass fabricated. With this cover we can move the earliest issued day to May. In Harbin Area was the postal rate for covers sin...

Re: Kerr 69.5-15 vs. Kerr 69.28-37

Interesting observation. Combined chops of 2 or 4 were often used to overprint sheets, but I think here is just a "fat" and overinked overprint. The chop is the same, you can see in the overlapped scan: Overlapped-(top-bottom-stamp).jpg The thinner overprint fits 100% in the fat overprint. All other...

Re: Kerr 69.5-15 vs. Kerr 69.28-37

it’s like you said, to distinguish a wood and rubber chop just buy the mentioned criteria is hard up to impossible. A sign of a wood chop (sometimes also for metal but for metal chop some other criteria more important) are fine breaks, creaks and holes in the overprint, I add you a photo from a typi...

Re: Kerr 69.5-15 vs. Kerr 69.28-37

Excellent question! :) My opinions are so far: - Kerr 69.28-37 does not exists or - Kerr 69.28-37 we never saw in real or scan There is no single overprint set in all Liberated Area stamps (which were mainly overprinted) known where a set is split into a rubber and wood chop overprint, by a virtual ...
