Joseph Geyfman Catalog 2
Joseph Geyfman
is soon to launch his second book on Russia Local Provisionals (well, a two-book set actually). The 2nd Edition of his catalog will be finished late fall and will be printed out by the end of 2021/beginning of 2022. Unlike the 1st Edition, this one is 2-volume set including images of thousands of forgeries. You will see a price for any postal correspondence, partial list, blocks of 4, pairs of stamp, etc. It will be not only specialized catalog, but also specialized catalog-monography.
You’ll see a chapter about the differences between genuine and forged overprints and postmarks; article about gradation of provisional stamps depending on their rarity (12-13 levels of rarity, etc. Click image to enlarge. Pre-orders or questions, please email Joseph directly at
