5000 1996 Stylized Turtle Cinderella o/p'd on Scott Russia #6068. O/P is all in black. Each new stamp created w/ the o/p covers two of the old Russian stamps. Although this stamp has been called a Cinderella on this web site, it has been learned that at least one of them was used to frank a registered cover so perhaps it should be called a provisional overprint rather than a Cinderella.
