Used PZK (?)


I am not sure about this one. At least the date on the postmark looks right. Any suggestions?

Can you e-mail me a bigger scan???

Never mind, I just realizied it is from e-Bay.

From what I can see of the overprint,

the letters look too thick,

the "r" on the bottom has the wrong shape on the tail

the "I" on the top line is too wide

and it appears to me that the postmark is under the overprint.

Thanks a lot for a detailed answer, but now I have two opposite opinions :( Anyone else to break the tie? I would really appreciate it.

The other opinion was that it is genuine.

Rossica is about open communications. It is not about buy/sell. When a member asks a question, it should be answered, if possible, with facts.

We have one person's opinion on the item, but the counter opinion is masked in secrecy.

Again I ask, who stated it is genuine and what are the facts provided.

Well, the other opinion is mine. I am a novice in the area so I guess it doesn't really count...

It certainly does count!
Your opinion is the most important!
Don't let anybody tell you different.

With out a doubt, looking at a stamp on the screen is the hardest way to "opinionize(?)" (:D) a stamp. Please keep that in mind as well...

Michael is correct. Everybody's philatelic opinion does count.

This is not an area I collect so I cannot directly relate. However, I think there is probably ample literature available to aid the novice as well as th expert on this subject.
