Arc stamps: the three lower values of Issues II & V (#’s 3-5, 15-17).

Note: Arc Stamp identifying differs from identifying other Przedbórz stamps:
Here, you have to check all the genuine types before checking for forgeries, for the most part.

Genuine stamps must match all the charactistics shown.

Issue II #3 (2 Gr. Green City Hall) Genuine Types


No. 3 type 1
  • The box around Grosze is broken at the top, between the G and R (and part-way across the top of the R.)
  • The right inner frame line stops 1 mm above the tree, but a vestige remains next to the tree.
  • The left inner frame line stops at the roof line, so that the left-most building has no border at the left end.
  • Miasto Przedbórz has a slight downward tilt, so that the foot of the M is about 0.7 mm above the frame line, but the foot of the final Z is only 0.35 mm above it.
  • The inner frame line around the lower left 2 is not continuous. Instead, there are two lines which partially overlap.



  • No. 3 type 2
  • The frame line below Przedbórz has a 0.1-0.2 mm break between the P and the R.
  • The right inner frame line goes down to the tree leaves, about 2.5 mm below the top of the tree.
  • The left inner frame line goes down the entire length of the building, stopping about 0.5 mm above the M of Miasto.
  • The left foot of the M is only about 0.7 mm from the left thick middle frame line, and the foot of the final Z is about 0.65 mm from the corresponding right frame line.
  • There's a short line (about 0.4 mm long) below the lip of the left 2.
  • Lower right corner of Fischer number 3, type 2 Just above the right denomination tablet, the outer frame line is connected to the wide inner frame line by a short horizontal bar.



  • No. 3 type 3

  • The frame lines are similar to type 2, but Miasto Przedbórz has been shifted to the right, so that the left foot of the M is about 1.2 mm from the left thick middle frame line, and the foot of the final Z is 0.4 mm from the corresponding right frame line
  • It looks like someone has trimmed the bottom of the “órz”, so that the ó has a flat bottom and the foot of the final Z has almost disappeared.
  • There is a dot between the top lines of the Z and E of Grosze.
