Hello everyone, I was wondering if you could help me with this stamp. I looked it up in Scott and couldnīt find it.
I suppose it is from the Russian Empire but I am not sure.

It is similar to Scott 5 but have the following differences:

Denomination 2k, horizontally laid paper.

Not Scott 26 or 31, different coloring (it is yellow). It has numbers in the background. Thank you for your help!

Thank you Peter! I have already checked Finland in Scott and I didn't find it there either...

Hi Andy,

This Russian 2 kopeck stamp has Scott type A2 so it seems the only candidate is Scott #26 black & red (SG 30).

I assume the colour has severely faded as a result of sunlight or solvent.

Most likely Michel # 24 after a chemical or natural discoloration

Agreed vayolene,

Mi 24 = Sc #26 = SG 30

Black turned to brown also. To have a stamp with two wrong colors is very unlikely.

Most likely a cut-out from a postal stationery envelope.
Maybe this one (Michel U30)
