The full but forged sheets of Volga famine relief issue were sold on eBay few days ago for GBP 66.00 (approximately $88 USD). Not too bad for the British dealer who sold it as genuine stamps, but a big surprise (in future) for a buyer.
Probably forged stamps of the Volga famine relief issue are more common and it’s not so easy to purchase full original sheets.

Update: Another lot of forged sheets was sold as genuine stamps for $77.00 by eBay dealer mijo7570. All images are clickable.
