re: Italy,San Marino overprint

Yes, it was officially released by the postal service for use by the general public.

The unoverprinted stamp was originally prepared to commemorate the 20th anniversary of fascism. Of course, things changed when Mussolini was overthrown on July 25, 1943. So the stamps were overprinted with 2 different types of overprints.

In the Scott catalog, your stamp is San Marino #228(27Aug1943).

re: Italy,San Marino overprint

I have three of these without the overprints - there they are, in the middle row below - which do not seem to be recognised by Stanley Gibbons - does anyone know anything about that? They may be worth thousands, of course...

re: Italy,San Marino overprint

The set does exist without the overprint. Scott states that the set value is about twice that of the overprinted set.

Overprinted in Scott for the three values you show:

5 Lire 2015 Scott #225 value $1.50
10 Lire 2005 Scott #226 value $2.40
20 Lire 2015 Scott #227 value $6.50

You could double the catalog values of the individual overprinted stamps stated above to give you an idea.

Michel doesn't list them. They have a footnote similar to Scott after the listing.

The 1999 Michel gives the value of the un-overprinted set at about 6 times that of the overprinted set value. Of course, that was 16 years ago and could have changed since.
