Inverted '1921' Stamps

How many of us have a CTO set of 195-208, 0127-0140 with the inverted '1921' overprint ? Only asking about the CTO ones. 

Comments

  • I am missing two stamps (10c and 30c) from having a complete CTO set of 195-208.  I have a complete CTO set of O127-40.  I have been trying to put together a non-CTO sets but it is proving to be a little difficult.

    Are you saying the whole set has the inverted '1921' ? What about #201 the 20c cent one ? Is that one inverted or upright ? If you can send a scan on that one. Thanks…Albert
  • Since 201 is normally found with the date inverted, the stamp with the date NOT inverted is considered the invert.  I am sure Manfred has both regular and officials inverted pictured on this site.  If not, I have them on my site.

    Because no catalog mentions this I would like to add that the overprint on three of the four stamps in portrait format normally reads upwards, while for the 5c official (Scott O130) downward is normal.
  • It isn't very likely that the whole sets exist both mint and CTO. But, who knows ... ? Perhaps together we can find out what inverts do exist in which condition?

    I will go ahead and list what I have below. If anyone has to add something, I would ask him to copy this list and paste it supplemented with his additions.
    I repeat: inverts are stamps that have inverted overprints with respect to the prevalent variety! For most stamps that means the "1921" is upside-down or reading downwards; exceptions are Scott #201 (20c regular) and Scott O130 (5c official).

    So, here is my list of inverts:
    regular mint:
    5c, 15c, 20c,
    regular CTO:
    1c, 2c, 3c, 5c, 15c, 25c, 30c, 50c, 75c, $1, $2, $5
    official mint:
    20c, $5
    official CTO:
    1c, 2c, 3c, 5c, 10c, 15c, 20c, 25c, 30c, 50c, 75c, $1, $2, $5


  • I have added my mint 1c, 2c, and 3c inverts of the regular issue to the list...

    regular mint:
    1c, 2c, 3c, 5c, 15c, 20c, 
    regular CTO:
    1c, 2c, 3c, 5c, 15c, 25c, 30c, 50c, 75c, $1, $2, $5
    official mint:
    20c, $5
    official CTO:
    1c, 2c, 3c, 5c, 10c, 15c, 20c, 25c, 30c, 50c, 75c, $1, $2, $5
  • Just received a mint block of four of O134 so updating the list.
