25 GROUP OF 3 COLORS [1882 2 penni gray 4-Numerals, Perf 12.5] All three stamps Used with VF centering and very neat cancellations. One is an olivish gray with a arc-style cancellation (usually indicating earlier use); another light gray with a Hangö-Hyvinge railway cancellation; lastly a light silvery gray with fully dated 31 November 1888 2-ring cancellation. Also, the three stamps show three difference sizes (none are reperforated) and include both the sharp and the broad perforation teeth. Very attractive group.

25 [1882 2 penni 4-Numeral, perf 12.5] original-issue stamp with boxed 23 x 8 mm black "SPECIMEN" overprint by metal handstamp (vertical, reading down from left). 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. Examples are seldom seen and are grossly undervalued in the market, largely due to never having been properly listed in the specialized catalogs.

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!

27 [1882 10 penni 4-Numeral, perf 12.5] original-issue stamp with boxed 23 x 8 mm black "SPECIMEN" overprint by metal handstamp (vertical, reading up from right). Mint with VF centering and full original gum, but slight paper aging and very small thin spot. 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. Examples are seldom seen and are grossly undervalued in the market, largely due to never having been properly listed in the specialized catalogs.
