These stamps exists with 'Nebr.' (Nebraska) or 'Kans.' (Kansas) overprints (1929), in order to prevent robbed stamps to be used in these areas.

(Postal forgery)

In the above postal forgery, the letters 'AGE' are not touching at the bottom (in the genuine stamps they do). Also the red 'penetration lines' in the bottom left parts of both '2's are not penetrating far enough compared to a genuine stamp.
