Is anyone interested in overprints or have any interesting overprints?
Show them here!

(Helpful hint for beginners: overprints differ from precancels.)

I guess this would be Nicaragua C148 with a twist.

I do like the US 1928-1929 Molly Pitcher, Hawaii, Kansas, & Nebraska overprints. I don't have many but they make for an interesting addition.

Hmmmm, its obviously a regular issue overprinted as an airmail and revalued..what else ?? I once pulled a 1920s Nicaraugua cover out of a dollar box...it JUST HAD A FEEL ABOUT IT...i put it on eBay and a couple of Nicaraugua airmail cover collectors got in a bidding war over it and it sold for FIFTY DOLLARS !

Phil, a small piece of paper stuck in the stock book behind this says
"Nicaragua C148
Double overprint with added orange XXX
Only 1 sheet known"

If so, it doesn't seem that Scott knows about it!

Overprints are just as interesting as pre-cancels to me. I have a few but currently are scattered thru out my stamp box. I would have to say though that my favorite is an old german with Htler on it over printed with Oustland.

Larry, I find those Nicaraugua overprints very difficult..Scott does not bother to list so many of them..there also seems to be some kind of pen cancel ? or something written on it..

Cimarron, these aren't the Oustland overprints but behind bars, as in these Austrian overprints, seemes like a good place for him.

Those are really neat looking M_W. If I had some I would almost be tempted to frame them and hang them on the wall. that is the best picture of Hitler yet.

Overprints with a difference !
These privately made Palestine 'forgeries' were overprinted in Ramallah at the request of the Palestinian hierarchy. It was rumoured[rather strongly] that Mr Arafat himself was behind this propaganda issue.
Either way, they are nice additions to an Overprint,propaganda or Cinderella collection.
Here are a couple of the set, which was quite pricey and has become extremely scarce.
Collected in Blocks of 4....of course !

Anyone know Rich Drews?

From what I can gather, he was a candidate for APS Director at Large in 1989. He had a variety of postage stamps privately overprinted for publicity purposes and collectors were able to get copies through a mention in Linn's by sending him a self-addressed, stamped envelope. One such is shown in the "Covers To Eat Pie By" thread with a French overprint applied. Here are some more.

You would think that a person, from The APS, would have
second thoughts on marring a stamp

Would they be Cinderellas or Cinderella's step sisters?
