Kolchak and Kuban Issues?

A curious collector sent these stamps to me for a look. Here is what he said:

"I know that that period is full of bogus issues and private overprints, but I collect them too and however, Id like to know any information on them.
Here attached 2 scans: a single stamp that really mystifies me, I cant even tell if the overprint is over or below the cancel; then what seems a set (even if the 1 R values are different), with overprints similar both to Kolchak issue for Siberia (but different values and size of overprint) and to Kuban issue (but no line left of the figures). I remember I bought one of these (one of the 2 with 50 overprint, the violet one, I think) by an e-bay seller, and he wrote me he had been told by a collector it was a Novorossijsk issue (?)."

Any thoughts or opinions?

The five stamps on the right are well-known bogus formerly listed in some old catalogs as the Novocherkassk (not Novorossijs) issue. The left stamp might be an unknown local revaluation provisional of 1920 but more probably a bogus too.
