Does anyone have any overprints where the value is changed at least twice by the overprints? I found a few (below). Anyone got any more??

Found one more:

A 5 Dinar stamp was overprinted to make 50 Dinars



Three zeroes were then added to make it a 50 000 Dinar stamp.



The images are from http://overprintedstamps.wordpress..../yugoslavia/

Perhaps these are less common than I first thought.

I hadn't gone back to do any further digging (no time), but I see that British Honduras will be a good place to look...there are several of them listed.

I'd checked my Ceylon and Straits Settlements first, because they are full of overprints, but I didn't notice any double value changes.

There are at least a couple from Liberia:
Old Palm SG219(1904) 1c on 5c on 6c green
Commerce SG290(1913) +2c on 3c on 10c black & purple

St Vincent QV SG46(1885) 1d on 2 1/2 pence on 1d lake

I'm sure that there are plenty more around.

You know, Pete, I thought this would be an easy one,
but dashed if I can find any,
trouble is, I have no way of querying my database
for an example of say "Xc on Xc on Xc" which is what I would have typed.

It is a very unusual question.

Countries with lot of opts, excluding the mainland Americas,
are Haiti and Romania.
I'll have to dig around some.

Some great results so far, from all.

Some tasty reading whilst you pore through your collections :)

U. S. -- First Surcharged Stamp

The first adhesive postage stamp in world philatelic
history to be overprinted with a new valuation was an
issue in used in the United states in 1846. This was
a stamp of the United States City Despatch, operating
in New York City, and the item is listed by Scott,
under the "Carriers" group as no. 6LB7.

The 3 black on green was surcharged with a large red
"2," which very nearly covers the entire Washington
portrait, and at the same time the word "Three," was
obliterated by a bar, also in red.

About three copies of this variety are know, all on
covers used in 1846. The first known copy to come
to the knowledge of collectors was discovered some-
time before 1900. It was used on a letter dated
February 14, 1846. This cover was originally in
the famed F. W. Hunter collection, one of the great
collections of the day, sold in January, 1900.

Later it was in the Dr. C. W. Bowers collection and
more recently in the Caspary collection. Caspary
had a second copy, also on cover, used March 2, 1846.
A third copy, and on the cover with a "January 9"
postmark was once in the collection of Count
Ferrary and later in the collection of Arthur Hind.

The large numeral "2" used in making the surcharge
appears to have been a cut-out from one of the
handstamps regularly in use at the New York post
office, the so-called "drop-letter" postmark,
reading "NEW-YORK 2 cts.," so frequently seen on
stampless New York covers of the period.

Little history of information is available on
the stamp and why those 3 stamps were so over-
printed to reduce them to 2 in value. The
U. S. City Despatch Post, in early 1846, was
still in operation by the government.

Yeh Rod. I knew you'd come up with something.

Are there other similar Chinese stamps like, perhaps, the ones below?

I assume the first one is not a value change but the second is - my knowledge of Mandarin could be written on a postage stamp in large letters.
