Stamps 13NB1, 13NB2 emitted under Russian Occupation of Germany, 1946, overprinted Eilenburg.
Is the Eilenburg overprint fake? I find it curious that 2 types of overprint appear on the same sheet.

They look quiet genuine.They were printed that way with 2 different Eilenburg's in the sheet.The imperf types are scarcer.

The existence of these two overprints in se-tenant pairs does not seem to be a reason to assume it is a fake. It would not be the first such example in philately.

This particular combination exists.

Thanks perf12 and NSK.
For me, a collector of German stamps, this period of the Local Post stamps is still new. I still do not buy considering the existence of forgeries. I am looking for as much information as possible.

Michel considers MiNr. 87-89 with an overprint Dessau or Ellenburg as charity stamps having no postal value. But they are still quite collectable.The left sheet half received the diagonal overprint and the right sheet half received a horizontal overprint so se-tenants appear.

As perf12 said,the imperforate types are much more valuable.

BPP won't expertize them, however.

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

With your information I managed to find it in Michel in the chapter "Nicht Amtliche Ausgaben"
