There were at least two comments on piecing together/reconstructing a map. The site I linked to above points out

Quote:
Printed sheets of map stamps had 12 rows of 19 stamps, for 228 stamps per sheet. This unusual format was to make good use of the total size of map sheets.


And if I'm reading the information correctly, there are 78 different, known maps used. That makes almost 18,000 possible positions for any given stamp.

Hi there all. Many years ago I purchased a "lot" of items that included some stamps. Just dug them up and decided to see what they are about and ended up here. What a great forum !! So I registered and looking for some education and help. I have 2 complete sheets of Latvia stamps on maps and one complete sheet on banknotes. Anything special I should know.. did I happen to stumble on a lottery ticket or just a nice dinner out ? Any help would be appreciated... Thank you all !

A nice dinner. There are 2 sheets of Sc 1 on eBay right now. One for $600 and the second. a forgery, for $775. And I didn't check Sc 2. Which stamps on the banknotes? Because there were many on various types of banknotes.
