Another Nikolajevsk fake on ebay (?)


Sorry if this topic is redundant but I just want to make sure this one is a fake (ebay 4168149711).

Probably.
Characteristics of this overprint that raise my eyebrow, but do not necessarly guarentee a forgery are:
Ink is to fluid.
Serif on the "1" is at the wrong angle
"0" has the wrong shape
Lack of frame breaks
Overprint is too "clean."
