Hello Everyone, My name is Larry Sherby. My Grandfather was Dimitri Scherbinin who is the origionator of the French consulate authentication certificate posted by Gerg Mirsky posted 11/12/04. I have others and need help in determining authenticity of the stamps themselves. I do not wish to sell fakes as there are more than enough out there as it is. Can anyone help me?
Thanks,
Larry

Re: French certificate. From what I have read, such certificates seem to have invariably contained forgeries upon closer examination. Yet this one seems to be genuine?
Does anyone know of other cases where a so certified
N on A stamp was genuine? This is interesting.

Re Mike's posting of 11/11/04, I'm not sure how comfortable to be with a Pappadopoulo marking on the back. He did instigate the set, to be sure. But, as I understand it, he also seems to have made his own version of it (and probably the N on A cancellor as well), carried around the geniune overprint stamper, and played havoc with one of the Vladivostok cancellors. He was a rascal, but I do love to learn about him. Did I read somewhere that he wound up in Japan and continued his business there? But I digress...

Thanks for the information about the inks. Can I guess that this might have something to do with certain other overprints - like the ones for Batum?

If the scan of the 50-kop stamp produced by achlenov shows the shades correctly, it should be a forgery, since stamps of this shade were issued in 1919 in Soviet Russia and could not be delivered to the Far East by 1921 because of the Civil War events.

All the aforementioned points are discussed and summarised in Forgery Guide No.19/20, October 2008, "Russia-Siberia: Priamiur & Maritime Provinces & Soviet Far East Issues."

ANother Nikolaevsk-on-Amur Example 10k on 10k - or is it?


Amazing, I had a few moments of my life that were not dedicated to work and I broke out an old stock book. I have had this stamp for years and really do not believe it is much. No reference to these type of stamps in Scott. Gibbons says it is Russia Civil War Issues - V. 1921 Nikolaevsk-on-Amur. I can attest to the 10 arms type stamp that is 14x 14.5 perforation, and there is no watermark. I am unable to isolate the overprint from the stamp, and the black overprint on dark blue is hard for me to separate. Any opinions on authenticity?

Thanks,

Jeff

This is very much not my area. But if I recall correctly, the document(s) signed by the consul -- there may be several -- have been debunked, as some of the enclosed stamps were found to be "reprints" -- if a fantasy that was
never actually issued can be considered to have reprints.
