Catalog Image Notes
S 303 var eBay described as "Horizontal pair perforation 10 1/2, Scott #303. Error: imperforate between, mint never hinged. Very rare error. The stamp is on a snow white paper as all perforated stamps of this set ( in a difference to imperforate, which printed on a light blue paper). One stamp with normal perforation 10 1/2 in the spacial Russian catalog (V.Liapin, Moscow 1999) cost $100.00. Estimate $250.00."  Opened for $120 and closed with no bids.  Scott values each stamp normally at $22.50 (June 00).  
S 326 imperf pair
SG 456a
Used, nice cancel, and clear watermark with good margins.  This is not referred to in Scott; SG lists it without giving a value.  The new Russian Standard Collection catalog suggests a value of $1500.  Opened for $1000 and closed with no bids (Nov 00).  
S 375 err The perforation is shifted and also part of the stamp is not printed.  There appears to be a cancel on this - if you can believe that!  Opened for $15 and two bidders took up to $15.50 (Oct 00).
S 380 err eBay - what is known as a "fantail" error due to omitted perfs on one side.  Used.  Opened for $65 and closed with no bids (July 00).
S 576 err Extra row of perfs.  Opened for $20 and closed with no bids.  Scott values the underlying stam at $2.40 each or $4.80 for two (Jul 01).
S 585 var eBay described as "Fantail BOTTOM, used (CTO). Not listed in special catalogs including catalog of missing perforation created by Mr. Y.Dimanstein, Russia. Extremely rare."  Opened for $150 and closed with no bids (June 00).
S 603 err eBay described as "Vertical pair imperforate between, mint never hinged. Very scarce error. Special Russian net catalog (V.Liapin, Moscow 1999) - price for hinged $75.00 (very under valued)."  Opened for $60 and sold at that price (June 00).
