A variety with wrong font “C” in “Cephalonia”
is found in several positions in each sheet of
all denominations except those overprinted on
single stamps. It sells for about three times the
price of a normal pair.
Several other minor spelling errors in the
overprint occur on several denominations in
one of the printings.
Forgeries exist of many of the higher valued

Values of stamps overprinted by
letterpress in pairs are for unsevered
pairs. Single stamps, unused, sell for
one third the price of a pair; used,
one half the price of a pair.
Handstamped overprints were also
applied to pairs, with “isola” instead
of “isole.”

Greek stamps with Italian overprints
for the islands of Cerigo (Kithyra),
Paxos and Lefkas (Santa Maura) are
fraudulent.

These islands were acquired by
Great Britain in 1815 but in 1864 were
ceded to Greece on request of the
inhabitants.
In 1941 the islands were occupied by
Italian forces. The Italians withdrew in
1943 and German forces continued the
occupation, using current Greek stamps
without overprinting, except for Zante.
For stamps of the Italian occupation
of Corfu, see Corfu.

Beware of forgeries and/or reprints
of most Iran stamps between the
years 1870-1925. Scott values are
for genuine stamps. Collectors
should be aware that forgeries of
many issues outnumber genuine
examples by factors of 10 or 20 to

on the part of the collector, these
stamps should be examined or
authenticated by acknowledged
experts before purchase.

Nos. 15-16, 18-20 were printed in blocks of
4, with spacing of 2mm or less, No. 15 also in
vertical strip of 4. No. 17 in a vertical strip of 4.
The 2s black and the vertical-strip printing
on the 1s are on medium to thick grayish wove
paper. Both printings of the 1s are found in
black as well as gray black. Forgeries exist.
Official reprints of the 1s and 4s are on thick
coarse white paper without gum.

Unofficial Reprints:
1875 and 1876 issues.
The reprints of the 1s and 1k stamps are
readily told; the pearls of the circle are heavier, the borders of the circles containing the
Persian numeral of value are wider and the
figure “1” below the lion is always Roman.
The reprints of the 2s have the outer line of
the frame at the left and at the bottom broken
and on some specimens entirely missing.
A distinguishing mark by which to tell the 4s
and 4k stamps is the frame, the outer line of
which is of the same thickness as the inner
line, while on the originals the inner line is very
thin and the outer line thick; another feature of
most of the reprints is a gash in the lower part
of the circle below the figure “4.”
In the reprints of the 8s stamps the small
scroll nearest to the circles with Persian
numerals at the bottom of the stamp touches
the frame below it; the inner and outer lines of
the frame are of equal thickness, while in the
originals the outer line is much heavier than
the inner one.
All reprints are found canceled to order.

Four varieties of each.
Nos. 11-14 were printed in horizontal strips
of 4 with 3-10mm spacing between stamps.
The strips were then cut very close all around
(generally touching or cutting the outer framelines). Then they were hand-rouletted between
the stamps. Values are for stamps with rouletting on both sides and margins clear at top
and bottom. Stamps showing the rouletting on
only one side sell for considerably less.
Nos. 11 to 14 also exist pin-perforated and

No. 13b has spacing of 2-3mm.

Very fine to superb specimens sell at
much higher prices, and inferior or

depending on the condition of the
individual specimen.
Cracked gum on unused stamps
does not detract from the value.

Bisects of the 5s and 1s, the latter used with
2s stamps, were used to make up the 2 1/2
shahis postcard rate. Bisects of the 10s were
used in the absence of 5s stamps to make up
the letter rate.
The 10s was bisected and surcharged “5
Shahi” or “5 Shahy” for local use in Azerbaijan
province and Khoy in 1877.
“Imperfs” of the 5s are envelope cutouts.
Forgeries and official reprints exist.
Very fine examples will have perforations
cutting the background net on one side. Genuine stamps withs perfs clear of net on all four
sides are very scarce.

Crude forgeries of Nos. 58-59 exist. Halves
of the 10s, 50c and 1fr surcharged with Farsi
characters in red or black are frauds. The 50c
and 1fr surcharged with a large “5” surrounded
by rays are also frauds.
No. 59 used is valued for c-t-o.
For overprints and surcharges see #66-72.
Very fine examples of Nos. 53-59 will have
perforations cutting the outer colored border
but clear of the inner framelines.

TWO TYPES:
Type I - “CHAHI” or “KRANS” are in capital
letters.
Type II - Only “C” of “Chahi” or “K” of “Krans”
is a capital.
The 3c and 5c sometimes have a tall narrow
figure in the upper left corner. The 5c is also
found with the cross at the upper left broken or
missing. These varieties are known with many
of the overprints.
Stamps of Design A25 have a faint fancy
background in the color of the stamp. All

Nos. 247-257 and the 12c on brown paper
and on blue paper with blue quadrille lines are
known without overprint but are not believed to
have been regularly issued in this condition.
The 1c to 10k, A25 type I, with violet overprint are believed not to have been regularly
issued. Five denominations also exist with
overprint in blue, black or green.

Reprints, counterfeits, counterfeit overprints,
with or without cancellations, re plentiful for
Nos. 247-257, 280-290.
Five stamps of type A25, type II, in high
denominations (10, 20, 25, 50 and 100
tomans), with “Postes 1319” lion overprint in
blue, were used only on money orders, not for

The “Officiel” overprint does not signify that
the stamps were intended for use on official
correspondence but that they were issued by
authority. It was applied to the stocks in Tabriz
and all post offices in the Tabriz region after a
large quantity of stamps had been stolen during the Russian occupation of Tabriz.
The “Officiel” overprint has been
counterfeited.

the late printings of the stamps. These are perf
11 1/2 (11 1/2x12 for the 4k) with the distance
between the inner lines of the inscription tablets at top and bottom of the portrait being
19mm. Unused stamps with other perfs or a
shorter vignette sell for much higher prices.
The reprints include inverted centers for
some denominations.

In 1912 this overprint, reading “Sultan
Mohammed Ali Shah Kajar,” was handstamped on outgoing mail in the Persian Kurdistan region occupied by the
forces of the former Shah Mohammed
Ali. It was applied after the stamps were
on cover and is found on 8 of the Shah
Ahmed stamps of 1911 (1c, 2c, 3c, 6c,
9c, 13c, 1k and 26c). Some specialists
add the 10c. Forgeries are abundant.

In 1914 a set of 19 stamps was
prepared as a coronation issue. The
10 lower values each carry a different
portrait; the 9 higher values show
buildings and scenes. The same set
printed with black centers was overprinted in red “SERVICE.” The
stamps were never placed in use, but
were sold to stamp dealers in 1923.

The 13c, 26c and 3k to 30k denominations
were not regularly issued with this overprint.
Dangerous counterfeits exist, usually on
reprints.

Four bicolored stamps of this design
(1s, 2s, 5s, 10s), with centers
embossed, exist, but were never issued
or used in Iran. Value $20. They are
known imperforate and in many trial
colors.
