Can anyone tell me what this overprint is and what the Scott numbers is for this stamp? I have many of them and I've looked in Greece and Crete and found nothing.

I just found this one as well and would love the same information.

Lisa,

Both of these stamps are from the Greek Occupation of Thrace. In the Scott Catalog (2011) the 2 lepta rose is Scott # N29, the 5 lepta green is Scott N56. Each has a catalog value of $0.25 mint and $0.40 used.

Thank you! I never would have thought to look in Thrace. My lack of an education regarding USA and world history from "the Best Schoool in NH" is catching up with me. My hope is to learn a lot more history through my stamps and it's working already!

If you took Trignometry or Geometry in High School you would have used the Greek letter "Θ" "Theta" to represent a plane angle and thus the "Θ" (Th) in the "Θρᾷκες" part of your overprint that starts the word Thrace is the first clue.
