Eagle issues, various overprints
Just after World War I many overprints were issued on stamps of Tsarist Russia.
Some overprints on these stamps were issued for the Kuban region.
A label with inscription: 'For the use of families of those called up to the war' (World War I? information obtained from Robert Scott, Greece):
(Example of Northern Army and Chita)
(South Russia, Rostov issue, inscription 'EPMAKb')
(Denikin Army stamp, South Russia, inscription 'EDNHAR POCCIR')
(White Russia; inscription 'ACObHbI ATPAD)
(Northern Army: inscription 'OKCA')
(A few examples of the many zemstvo stamps that were issued in Tsarist Russia)
Normally an inscription equivalent or similar to '3EMCKAR' can be found on these local stamps.
SERBIA: inscriptions 'CPBNJA', 'POWTA' or 'CPPCKA', examples:
MONTENEGRO: inscriptions 'UP. GOPE' or 'PPHA GOPA', examples:
BULGARIA: inscription 'bbLGAPCKA POWA' or similar, the value is in 'CTOT' or 'LEBA'
