A bogus postmaster provisional?


Any ideas what this might be, I couldn't find it in Ceresa's book...
Any suggestions highly appreciated.

Michel has pretty good listing of provisionals, but I was unable to find anything similar to this one too.

Actually, Ivo Steijn has pointed out that this one is listed in Ceresa B2 p.299 and illustrated on p.301. Apparently not enough is known about this issue.

This issue was used by provisional authorities. One example is known on cover and two on money transfers. All were re-evaluated by hand with new denomination. None mach the look, position and hand writing of this item. Ceresa lists other Denikin “tropheynie” stamps revaluated by “pp” hand written revaluation but none are known used or on cover
As is the example above.

Ceresa lists such stamps under Tal'noe (Vol. V, Sction B2, Parts 10-12, pp. 299-301. I have it on 10 k stamp. Of course, mint copies can be easily forged. At least, my copy is signed by Krynin, a well-known expert in the 1920-s and later.

BTW, the above-listed stamp was for sale by Petr Krynine from San Antonio, TX - a coincidence?:hop

P(etr?) Krynin resettled to the USA in the mid 1920s and was active, at least, to the WW2. This Petr is probably his grandson. However, this fact is no guarantee for the stamp genuineness.
