More on 8-kop overprints


According to specialized (Russian in particular) catalogs 8-kop overprints on postage-due stamps of 1925 are known of two types [1] second "A' of the second line line is under the "A" of the first line and [2] the lower "A" is left of the upper "A". The stamp shown below is somewhere in between, if to compare with illustrations in the above mentioned catalogs. I wonder if forgeries of those overprints are known and if so - if there are any descriptions of them available?

This stamp looks like good example of TYPE I overprint. I am not aware of any forgeries of this issue.
