This strip of five with the complete ovpt. appeared on ebay one month ago. What do you think? Genuine or fake?

It looks good, at least, although it is difficult to judge with certainty by this scan. The seller himself offered during the last months many good and genuine Russian stamps.

Thanks Alep:bouncy:
The ovpt is typographed and the ink is that kind of shiny deep blue you find on overprinted KITAI postcards.
