Lets make two mistakes.


Without having to look any further than the colour of the overprint, purple instead of black, this stamp screams forgery. The second mistake is that this value wasn't issued with the Kharkov III overprint.

Kharkiv III forged trident


I believe this is an illustration of the forgery F5(Kh.III) which has only been noted in a thin watery violet ink. My copies are mostly on the 1 kop. imperf. value, normal, inverted, double, between stamps, sideways and obliquely angled. The forger seems to have had a penchant for the bizarre. It makes an interesting addition to a reference collection. It is not very common and is usual found in old-time collections, circa 1930.
