Aunus: Specialized Stamps: 1919 Issue  
Scott numbers have been used unless otherwise indicated. All items are available for viewing on approval.
I only sell Aunus stamps that have been properly examined by an expert. Forgeries of the Aunus overprints are more common than the genuine stamps. I recommend that one never buy Aunus stamps without a recent photo certificate from a recognized Aunus expert. In my experience, bidding on or buying Aunus stamps that are not already accompanied by a proper certificate is often a waste of time and money.

NOTE ABOUT PRICING OF THESE AUNUS STAMPS: These prices include the cost of the accompanying certificate if/as noted in the description. For orders within the U.S. of $40 or more, shipping is free. The base price for my standard certificate for a single surcharged stamp is $24. (Experienced collectors will know that photo certificates generally cost a minimum of $25 to $40, PLUS shipping both ways.) However, most of the items offered in this section have a certificate with my lifetime (my life) guarantee -- such certificates are only available for stamps purchased from me. Furthermore, if you think these stamp prices are high compared to the catalog value, please note that while the catalog value is for a genuine stamp, it does not take into account the cost of having the stamp expertized. In my experience, a high percentage of Aunus stamps offered in the marketplace without certificates, even when offered by the most reputable of sellers, have fake overprints. The catalog editors base their values on the prices they see in the marketplace. However, a high percentage of those prices are for stamps that actually have fake overprints. If all the fake overprints were to magically disappear from the marketplace, the catalog values of Aunus stamps would rise considerably.
I am sorry, all of the items offered on this page have been sold (or the page is still in the process of being created and filled). I will be filling/refilling this page soon, but if there is something you are seeking, please email me to let me know about your interest.
