I have some which was overprinted twice. Anyone have seen three or more?

0.03 -> 0.50 -> 100

0.01 -> 0.25 -> 50; 0.01 -> 0.50 -> 1000 (on the same original issue)

@hansthedutchman,
Is this one (lot 276) considered two overprints or three overprints?

There are a fair number of double denomination overprints from British Honduras (Scott 33-37), Strait Settlement (Scott 65 66), and probably other British Empire Victoria stamps.

Zanzibar.
For the record, the only country? to print stamps using Selvedge.

A revenue stamp (label?) from Syria issued to apply a mandatory
postal tax for the Syrian Army to all postal items(overprint - stamp for Syrian Army).
5p on 25c on 40c, issued 1947-48.



There is another label listed, not in my possession, which is described as "5p on 4p on 25c on 40c".

Maybe the only country, but the Philadelphia (USA) Post Office carrier department issued stamps that were handstamped on the selvage from the 1˘ 1851 US issue - see Scott 7LB16 and 7LB18
