And the overprint is 20 "Tausend" (thousand, in German), not saufend. I wonder how you reached the briliant conclusion that it was a Russian stamp, while you can clearly read "Deustches Reich" (German Empire) in Latin alphabet; a Russian stamp should be written using cyrillic letters.

Hello,
I guess I need to go back to school. Really the T looks like an S I'm not familiar with Germany or Russian stamps. I am new to this.Mara

The reason it looks like an S is because the overprint is done using a type of Gothic lettering called Fraktur.
