Scott # 183, 250 R, perf 10.9


Ceresa in The Postage Stamps of Russia 1917-1923, Volume V, The R.S.F.S.R., Section C1, Parts 13-18, page112, describes faked line perforations for the 250 R stamp. "All are faked post 11.75 line perforations". Illustrated are 3 of 8 stamps recently purchased on E Bay in a large lot of Scott 181 to 186 from Turkey that are perforated 10.9 The remaining 5 have no selvage. All stamps are on horizontal mesh paper. In each of the 3 stamps the "perforations" vary from pin holes to dashes. Does anyone have further information on the origin or purpose of these faked line perforations?

The Zagorsky Catalogue mentions the chalk-surfaced variety as having private perforations from Abakan.

To confuse things -- The Liapin Catalogue mentions the Abakan local perforations -- but on ordinary creamy paper.

It also mentions a private perforation, also on ordinary creamy paper, from the Odessa Postal Okrug.

Scott 181, 250 R


This stamp is on "creamy" paper (actually looks light toned), horizontal mesh. Definitely not chalk surfaced paper. Thank you.
