Is this File:Albanian stamp 13.jpg an overprint?

Should discuss subject of private overprints, or mention and link to a new article in which this can be more extensively discussed. Private overprints, while generally making stamps invalid for postage (when not they have been used as control marks by businesses, etc.), have been used for commemorative and propaganda purposes by private individuals. Mention should, for example, be made of the woman who, during the Vietnam war, precancelled her stamps with "Pray for War" and the resulting brouhaha. --Daniel C. Boyer 15:26, 5 Dec 2003 (UTC)
Overprint colors in publishing
Why is this article totally concentrated on postal stamps and banknotes? The term "overprint" also concerns ink superposition in publishing technologies. 220.127.116.11 13:35, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
- Look at "what links here", seems like the most common expectation of the term is philatelic. Feel free to create overprint (publishing) and link to it from here, however. Stan 14:39, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
I'm about to add an extensive revision which includes some new references and links as well as a good number of representative images. It still lacks sources in many places so I'm afraid it's probably still a Start, but I hope it's an improvement. SteveStrummer (talk) 05:09, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
