Hi All,

I found these Zanzibar 1963 Freedom From Hunger stamps recently and noticed it has a "Jamhuri" overprint. Although Gibbons makes a note of it in their commonwealth catalogue they do not give a value. Could they be fakes? Any information about these stamps would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
James

Scott states that the overprint on this stamp was unofficial.

Very high magnification might allow you to see overprint ink laying over the cancellation or, hopefully, vice versa.

Cheers,
