I went to the other day and saw that this type of stamp was offered on e-bay. These are mine however.

The forgery/propaganda stamp is on the left. You'll notice the text on it is different than the authentic stamp on the right.

The image of Ermak' on the forgery/propaganda stamp is a less detailed.

I will not metion the difference in colours as a determining factor however. The reason for this is that both Kardakoff and Rybchenko list a yellow-green printing that I haven't seen as of yet.

Michael, I jumped at this item in the September Raritan auction, but did not get it. Not sure yet whether that was a bad thing.

Do you or anyone reading this have any background on it or know of any literature about it? It was certainly the first time I had seen such.

I'm still looking for an example of this forgery, its quite scarce. It went for more than I will pay for a forgery even when I need a copy. I'll just have to be content with the saved scan when I get round to the appropriate Forgery Guide.
