Description from Michel catalogue.

There are 2 types of overprint.

1 With dent in R
2 No dent in R.

Type 2 can be found on position/field 3 or 15 in part of the produced sheets.

Type 2 has a catalogue value of 10 to 20 times that of a type 1. Be aware of fakes as the dent can easily be filled in.

Why is the stamp on the right so different from the others?

Ken --- The answer would be 110 years ago ,A stamp collector would look at the stamp being offered for $2.00 from a seller and check his catalog and see that it catalogs for $20.00 ,so thinking it is a deal .
Here is the catalog {the stamp on the right of my scan looks just like the stamp I circled in orange ink }. What a deal, picture matchs close enough .

Should of added that is a Scott's Catalog from 1902 ,to check your stamps 110 years ago you had drawings to compare stamps so forgers just had to get close enough ,not like today were a scan is possible to compare the actual stamp .

Going back to the Swiss Stamps I'm confused are you saying the stamp on the left or the right is the forgery (or both)?

Working on this yesterday while bidding at Kelleher stamp auctions .


As discussed by Don and others here that a scanner or computer really doesn't pick up the true colors that we see in clear daylight . Here it looks like I got the shades in the wrong place on a computer screen ,when in fact in daylight it tells a different story .

Paul, the scanner software does some color balancing as it scans, and the blue is what is likely throwing the browns off. Try a neutral color for the labels and rescan and I bet the browns will look closer to correct.
