Tete-beche 7k soldier??


Here is a very weird lot currently on Ebay. Supposedly the 1926 watermarked imperforate issue (Michel 248E), BUT in a tete-beche pair!! On the back what appears as a "Hovest" signature?

Does such a pair really exist?

And the back of the "pair.

P.S To be precise Michel 248E is the unwatermarked version.

7k. tete-beche


I have not come across this before in 50 years collecting of Russia. To me it looks like a rather poor attempt at digital copying with invertion mode of Microsoft.

The Hovest signature is fake for sure.

Looking at the images the invert on the right looks to be an inert of the stamp to the left-the dot in the frame!. This could be a genuine margin copy with its invert printed digitally in the margin. Digital forgeries printed in the margin are dangerous because he paper s the genuine issue.

Looking at the images the invert on the right looks to be an inert of the stamp to the left–the dot in the frame at left at eye level, and the weak bottom corner!. This could be a genuine margin copy with its invert printed digitally in the margin. Digital forgeries printed in the margin are dangerous because the paper is of course the genuine issue.
