PMR Catalogue of USSR Overprints

The "Sun Rays" Group

Definitive & commemorative stamps of the former USSR overprinted and surcharged.

Introductory Note:

These Stamps are BOGUS.

These stamps were privately produced for speculative and/or propaganda purposes and without the knowledge or permission of the PMR authorities. They appeared in the post-civil war period in 1992/1993. Seemingly legitimate covers exist bearing these stamps, but these are also bogus.

These stamps are included here as an information services to collectors only.

The most interesting aspect of these stamps is the full sheet composition. The overprint measures 21mm wide by 34mm high and is printed horizontally on pairs of definitive stamps or horizontally in pairs on single commemorative stamps.

The catalogue prefix is "B-SR", for "Bogus - Sun Rays". I fully accept the possibility that there may be other types and varieties of these stamps that I have failed to include. If you know of any other material of this type, please send me scans and details by eMail to info@pmrstamps.org
