A couple of updates before we get to the list:

El Salvador:
We have just updated the El Salvador article on the 1916 Theatre and Tram Tracks design, following an amazing acquisition of previously unseen material, some of which will be offered in a later list, perhaps December's:
The revised El Salvador article may be found here (opens in a new tab).

Amongst the new items shown in the El Salvador article is a rare cover yet to be sold, which is being offered in Cherrystone Auction's November 10th/11th 2020 sale. No, we are not the seller nor do we have any financial interest in it!

Covid-19:
As we prepare this list, we have just heard that England is heading towards a significant countrywide lockdown again from Thursday November 5th. Although this does not preclude business visits to the post office, we shall continue to minimize trips there, probably limited to no more than once a fortnight, and the next visit will probably be this Wednesday (Nov. 4th). However, ordinary mail, not requiring signatures etc., will continue to be posted on a (nearly) daily basis

Saar:
We recently came across a high quality proof of a Saar design which is usually described as railway but rarely mentions the presence of a locomotive. The design and a detail scan is shown below:

The original 1 Mark design of April 1921 with a similar view may possibly show a locomotive but it is substantially different from the re-drawn design illustrated above, which clearly does show a steam locomotive. In this re-drawn design, there are the following basic values:

3c Olive Green
15c Brown

3c Olive Green optd DIENSTMARKE
15c Brown optd DIENSTMARKE

15c Orange
15c Orange optd DIENSTMARKE

There are also many proofs and colour trials associated with these Saar issues.

Between late 1991 and about 1994, a large number of surcharges were applied to stamps of the Soviet Union and to some of the early post-communist Russian stamps. They are mostly private productions, cinderella in nature, although there were some authentic postal surcharges from a few states, such as Uzbekistan and Latvia. The items above fall in the cinderella category and are either surcharged with trains and/or surcharges on the Soviet 2k and 7k definitives, which both show a train.

Prices (all are u/m):
Mordavia set/25 (5 strips of 5 values) £ 18.50

Mordovia set/6 200R-1000R £ 3.50
Nikolaev (on 7k blue) set/10 in a strip (inverted surcharge) £ 4.00
'Northland' set/5 (50R-1000R) on 2k £ 2.75
Cover from Petroskoya, registered with arrival backstamp; franking inclues a 2k £ 4.75
