North Ingermanland: Specialized Stamps: First Issue  
Scott numbers have been used unless otherwise indicated. All items are available for viewing on approval. I am also interested in buying most North Ingermanland stamps.
Only the second North Ingermanland issue (pictorial designs) has been heavily forged. (Credible forgeries of the first issue have not been reported.) The genuine stamps are usually easily identifiable. I only sell North Ingermanland stamps and covers that have been properly examined. I do not consider it necessary that collectors incur the cost of certificates for these issues, if they are purchased from a knowledgable specialist. However, in my experience, a large proportion of the 1922 Issue stamps offered by non-specialists or through general auctions and especially Internet auctions, are not genuine. Caution is advised.
See also the First Issue and Second Issue stamp sections, and the Forgeries section.

1 Misperforated. NH upper left corner margin block of 36 (9 columns, 4 rows) fully perforated with correct horizontal perforations. The vertical perforations are shifted about 3 mm to the right (thus cutting through the left "5"). The stamps are the normal 20 mm width except the right-most two columns which are narrower. The block also shows a variety of plate flaws, for example "white spot on N" in all the stamps of column 4. Clean perforations. Slightly crackled yellow gum (not the smooth gum type). Regular NH stamps sell for around $7/each ($250 total).

2 Perforation Error. NH right margin block of 10 (5 columns, 2 rows) fully perforated with correct horizontal perforations. The vertical perforations are shifted in dramatic ways, resulting in an extremely narrow (14 mm) column of stamps on left entirely missing the "10" on the right side. The next three columns of stamps of normal 20 mm width, but greatly misaligned due to the previous error; both "10" are on the left side of each stamp. The right column is extra-wide (24 mm) thus including the "10" of the adjacent stamp to the left; thus there are THREE "10" on the right-column stamps. Normal vertical perforation at right and left sides of the 10-block. Very clean perforations. Smooth yellow gum. A dramatic type of error including the narrowest and widest North Ingermanland stamps I can recall seeing and the only N.I. stamps I recall with only one denomination or with three denominations! Stunning item!

7 [10 mark, brown and black] Imperforate single, Mint VF, very lightly hinged. Ample margins. Despite the Scott listing for pairs, these are usually collected as singles. Much, much more difficult to obtain than the catalogs suggest. This is the key value of the set and is rarely available by itself.

WANTED
Need any imperforates of N.I. or any other varieties.
