(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.

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.

Mint with VF centering and full original gum, but ink stain on reverse. Wonderful appearance. Extremely scarce.

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!

28 SET OF TWO [1882 20 penni ultramarine 4-Numerals, Perf 12.5] Both Used with F-VF centering and great color. BOTH ARE FROM THE SAME SHEET POSITION AND SAME COLOR, CONFIRMING THE CONSTANT VARIETY IN THIS PRINTING. On the right side there is a spacer line (colored line resulting from spacers between the cliches) and also an extra colored line and colored dot at the lower right corner. It is very unusual to find a matching set like this -- one would probably have to search through thousands of stamps to find a set like this.
