I have seen a postcard of Germany (10 p red in the Germania type) with the same overprint as above.


Forged overprint? The second 'g' of 'Gultig' is of a totally different type!


FISCAL STAMPS WITH OVERPRINT "MViR" or "Gultig 9. Armee"

Fancy 'MViR' overprint:

'MViR' overprint in a square:

I have seen the 30 p grey large sized stamp with the same overprint (in red). I have also seen a 5 L red stamp (large size) with a black 'MViR' overprint.

Overprint: 'Gultig 9. Armee'

I have also seen 1 L brown and 5 L red with the 'Gultig 9. Armee' overprint (both in black).

A Timbru de Ajutor stamp of Rumania with 'Gultig 9.Armee' is a fiscal stamp as well (10 b violet with weaver design).
