This may be of use for those who struggle with the various overprints of the Early Palestine stamps of 1920-1922.
A specialized catalog is require to separate the many known types of overprints, but first and foremost a simple identification of the "Jerusalem" and "London" overprints is imperative.

re: Palestine Overprint Identifier

I have used this several times prior to seeing it here, and its a good starting place.
You need a good "eye" for detail but this can still be tricky to unravel.
There are very few experts in this field and one in the UK is well over 90!

re: Palestine Overprint Identifier

I find it simple and to the point. It is strange that with such simple instructions so many mistakes are still common.
The more valuable stamps (without going into detailed specialty plate and error variations, not counting cancellations too) are perforation variations!
