MLO Combined Chops (used for overprint)

Join Roman and Simon as we do our best to test the listings made by Kerr and later by Chan. What has been missed? Which overprints have been assigned to the wrong towns? What is genuine and what is suspect? - You get the idea......

MLO Combined Chops (used for overprint)

Post by Roman »

I like to collect in this thread an overview of all combined chops which were used for MLOs.

Let us start with Kerr 102.1-15. I add a scan which assemble Chop 1 to 4 (was combined in one big chop to overprint 4 stamps at once).

Unfortunately I missed for one type the 2f stamp. If some has this type by accident in his collection, please send me or post here a good high quality 600 dpi scan.

Roman,

Some years ago I put together a collection of these. I have some extras.

I also included the surcharges issued after these.

There are some really great errors on these too.

Thanks George, that's great!

Do you made maybe already a list for which MLO issues combined chops for the overprint were used?

This might be a very value information for all MLO collectors. :)

This is the value of sharing this information. I had not realised this was a combined chop, 4 in 1. I don't think I will attampt to assemble a set of all four types,I doubt I will live that long.

I have just a single set and the version I have for the 2f is your third example, so no help from me.

I have been thinking about the combination chop printing four different overprints at a time. How were they organised 2x2, or a row of 4? Either way they would be applied to sheets of 100 stamps 10x10. This seems a impractical. A row of 5 overprints would work, are you sure you are not missing one?

A chop of 2x2 is the best way to overprint a sheet 10x10. I came along with 1x2 (or 2x1) as well, but other combinations I didn't found yet (but that does not mean that they could not possible exist of course) :)

This is a good example to show the arrangements of a chop of 4:
