In the Scotts Cat. #3 (2011) page 1045 the Ionian Islands, under Italian occupation, listed in the NRA's. I've notes to the fact that both NRA1 & NRA2 have the Red Cross noted on these issues. So far, I've found no listing on the internet nor my other sources to show this to be a true fact. Does anyone have these issues in their collection that can confirm or deny this noted observation?

re: Ionian Islands

If I understand your question...

My Scott 2013 lists Ionian Islands #NRA2, NRA3 and NRA4 as overprinted on Greece #RA61-RA63. Those Greek stamps would not have had the TB double cross overprinted on them. However, Ionian Islands #NRA5 was overprinted on Greece #RA65. That Greek stamp had an overprint which contained the TB double cross already on it. The catalog notes that #NRA5 was not regularly placed in use.


Ionian Islands #NRA1 was overprinted on the Greece postage due issue of 1902, so this would not be applicable.

re: Ionian Islands

Thank you for clearing that issue up for me Terry. It was listed on a check list on Red Cross issues from the ATA, but I don't think enough research was done on the listing.
