Siberia - Admiral Kolchak's Govt


Note - in many cases, clicking on the image may open a larger copy of the image for better inspection.


On 18 November, 1918, Admiral Kolchak assumed power in Siberia, claiming the title of "Supreme Ruler".

He remained in power until 4 January, 1920, and which point, with the capture of Omsk by the Bolsheviks, he resigned.

A number of overprinted stamps were issued in Omsk and postally used during this period.

Scott does not appear to have a section on these issues, where Stanley Gibbons and Michel both show ten main types.

Counterfeits are thought to be fairly common.
