(23) [(1875) 32 penni 4-Numeral] Perforation 12.5 Official Reprint with boxed 23 x 8 mm black "SPECIMEN" overprint by metal handstamp (diagonal lower left to upper right, reading up from right). Mint with VF centering and full original gum. Extremely scarce. Both 500 unoverprinted and 500 specimen-overprinted reprints (supplies of the original stamps were exhausted) were ordered in 1892; the specimens were sent to the Russian postal administration for onward distribution. They were likely largely distributed via the UPU to other UPU member countries and thus most are still in postal archives and museums; the few examples available to collectors have likely been "liberated" one way or another. Examples are seldom seen and are grossly undervalued in the market, largely due to never having been properly listed in the specialized catalogs.

Mint with VF centering and full original gum, but ink stain on reverse. Wonderful appearance. Extremely scarce. It is believed that 500 were so overprinted in 1892 and sent to the Russian postal administration for onward distribution. They were likely largely distributed via the UPU to other UPU member countries and thus most are still in postal archives and museums; the few examples available to collectors have likely been "liberated" one way or another.

27 [1882 10 penni brown 4-Numerals, Perf 12.5] NEVER HINGED 4-BLOCK with perfect original gum. Single stamps of this quality are quite scarce; the surviving blocks are extremely scarce as they are too often broken up for the singles. The single stamps would each fetch $225. Facit 2015 value for a NH block with normal centering is $1050. Outstanding example!
