1945 ZAGREB, Overprint error

Stationery were overprinted with one phase in red color using setting composed with a bunch of different lines, five-pointed star, the inscription of a new state and a new nominal. Everything was fixed together quite well, so only minor displacements are recorded.

1945 Zagreb local provisional issue, stationery type Ib, with unusually large displacement of just one part of the overprint setting.

Such displacements have occurred because of loose cliches. Normal distance for a measure shown on the picture is 5.0 mm (type I) or 4.7 mm (type II and III).
