1944 SENTA, Classification of Overprints

The aim of my latest article is to show that the 1944 Senta provisional issue was overprinted with two different settings of text clichés, what has not been mentioned in the literature so far. The new overprint classification was prepared, so now it is possible to determine the position of any Senta stamp. The article is published in the Hrvatska Filatelija No. 4/2014, English version is available here.
