This seller, Hayden Stamps, continues to sell bogus overprints on GB stamps and Hitler heads despite me reporting him dozens of times.

https://www.ebay.com.au/str/haydenp...=11486115011

His response when I queried him was that his notation "priv issue" made it clear they were fakes. I chose to disagree with him.

Reports from other people would be useful to stop this guy printing more of this rubbish

The most effective approach may be if 5-10 people would buy the cheaper ones he has listed but then leave a neutral feedback noting that the private issue = faked overprint. eBay would be less likely to remove a neutral feedback and the neutral feedback comments would be a way to increase awareness with other potential buyers.

The term "private overprint" may or may not be used to deceive collectors...especially beginners.

After reading this thread, I submitted the term to the SCF glossary.

jubilee,
The link you have to the seller doesn't seem to be working when I click on it?

Hmm, linked worked earlier for me here in the US, but now it does not work. Neither the item number of the store name are now showing on eBay.au either; appears that store has been taken down?

The store was taken down. I contacted this seller and we had some back and forth this morning. I believe that he saw the light.
