I am unable to find a Scott Catalog listing for this set of three (3) Soviet Union/Lithuania Overprinted (O.P.) Image Not Foundstamps. The dark black O.P. reads, "NEPRIKLAUSOMA LIETUVA 1941-V1-23." Need a Cat. reference # and current valuation. Thanks.

re: Russia/Lithuania Occupation Overprints

LITHUANIA
On June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. Following the German occupation, Soviet stamps were overprinted "Nepriklausoma Lietuva 1941-VI-23" (Independent Lithuania 1941-VI-23) in 1941. Lithuania became part of the Reichskommissariat Ostland, the German occupation administration. Stamps were issued for use in the Reichskommissariat Ostland by overprinting "Ostland" on stamps of Germany.

The southern area of the country issued its own stamps on 16th July 1941 with the overprint "VILNUS". Some other towns issed their own stamps with their town names, but in some cases only numbered a few dozen stamps, so were not widely used.

Image Not Found

So they are from the German Occupation from 1941-1945.
Do not know Scott catalog. You could try COLNET.COM Lithuania German Occupation

I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

They are not found in Scott. The first 9 stamps with the overprint are Mi1-9 found under German Occupation as HockeyNut indicated. The 3 stamps shown by stampbaby are Mi3, Mi4 and Mi 6

Michel, I assume ?
And thus the need for other sources even
if they are a few years old.
