I have seen a postcard of 15 p lilac in the same design (no overprint).

CIS overprints:

The above unoverprinted stamps exists with 'CIS' overprint ('Commision Interalliee Schleswig'). They were issued to be used for officials. I have seen the whole set of 10 valued overprinted with 'CIS', they all had the same cancel 'FLENSBURG 22 1 20 7-2N' (cancelled to order, or forgeries?). Example:

Forged overprint?

These 'CIS' overprints have been forged. Shifted overprints are always forged.


(I've been told that this 2 M stamp is genuine)

MAK overprints:

A small amount of the remaining proofs (most of the proofs were destroyed), were overprinted with 'MAK.' (Makalatur). They exist perforated or imperforate. Even inverted and double overprints seem to exist. Any cancelled stamps must be forged (since they could not be used for postage).


(5 p imperforate stamp with overprint 'MAK.')
