I am sorting through a box of stamps from the 1920s and found this one. It is stamp-sized, imperf, on thin white paper. The writing is very small, and I can't make out what it says, only that is has a denomination of 20 in the ovals at the top.
I thought the middle word might be Madfa, which is in India, but they haven't released any stamps.

If anyone can tell me whether it is a stamp, or cinderella item, and identify it I would appreciate it.

Russia : North West Army Army of the North
Opinion : Forgery

This one may be genuine.
Note clearer impression.

My goodness rod222, that was an impressively quick reply, and even more impressive that you found it!
My thanks for the information. I share your opinion that a forgery is by far the most likely.

It is not an area I collect but I am most grateful to have the item identified.

It makes a regular appearance here
I remember when I first found my example years ago.
If you search this forum, for OKCA or North West Army
you'll no doubt find lots of threads.

PS: Mapka = Stamp, Postage Stamp, Label.
