Recently an E Bay seller, Stampseller 84, from Russia has been offering a continued supply of the 100,000 inverted overprints on all paper types of the 250 R ,Scott issue 183.

These inverted overprints are unusual.

I purchased out of curiosity and suspicion several of these at an inexpensive cost. The overprints have no resemblance to the genuine being very black and dense. Additionally they appear glossy and raised when viewed in indirect light whereas the genuine are flat and nearly invisable when examined at an angle.

Does anyone have any experience with this seller?
