Private overprints

1918 'Industrielle Kriegs-wirtschaft' (War Board of Trade)


(reduced sizes)

3 c grey 7 1/2 c grey 25 c blue 30 c brown and green

Tell's son:
  3 c brown
  5 c green
  7 1/2 c grey
Tell:
  10 c red on yellow
  15 c violet on yellow
Woman:
  20 c red and yellow
  25 c blue
  30 c brown and green

The official status of these overprints seems questionable. Furthermore, I have seen forged overprints.
