USSR Overprints

The "4 on 1" Types

Various Motifs Overprinted in Black on Blocks of 4 Definitive Stamps of the former USSR

 

1995

Special Notes

These stamps are BOGUS. They were privately produced without the knowledge or permission of the PMR authorities. Details are included here as an information service for collectors only.

This type of material exists in large quantities. The overprint motifs can range from antique aircraft, hot air balloons, birds, dogs, ships, trains etc. The overprints can be on a wide variety of definitive stamps of the former USSR.

This catalogue makes no attempt to list every known combination of overprints and USSR stamp types. It is sufficient to let collectors know that ANY material that resembles the three examples illustrated below, all belong to this group and all are completely bogus.

A single catalogue number Pst B-X4 has been assigned to all material in this group.

Example 1

"Antique Aircraft" motif overprinted across blocks of 4 1k definitive stamps of the former USSR.

Example 3

"Tall Ships" motif overprinted across blocks of 4 50k definitive stamps of the former USSR. Notice the use of the Russian word  "ТИРАСПОЛЬ" meaning "Tiraspol", the capital of PMR. This was probably used to make the collector think that this was some special provisional issue for the city.
