PMR Catalogue of USSR Overprints

The "Suvorov" Group

Definitive and commemorative stamps of the former USSR variously 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.

General Suvorov was the Russian conqueror of the region and the founder of the city of Tiraspol. These stamps feature the famous icon representing the Suvorov monument in Tiraspol.

The catalogue prefix is "B-SV", for "Bogus - Suvorov". 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
