TPStonesheep,

I think you might have misidentified your stamps.

It's the 1915 - Iran - Coronation of Shah Ahmed.

A note from Scott catalogue, "The 3c and 6c with inverted centers are considered genuine errors. Unauthorized reprints exist of these varieties and of other denominations with inverted centers". Last, beware of forgeries and/or reprints of most Iranian stamps between 1870-1925.

Thank you. So, if this is not a forgery, is it expected that the inverted side would be backed with the non-inverted side?

I am a bit confused by your terminology:

"invert on one side -- not on the other"
"is it expected that the inverted side would be backed with the non-inverted side"

Are the stamps printed back-to-back on one piece of paper?
If so, is there any indication of gum on one side?

It is not usually expected that a stamp will have another stamp printed on the reverse.

TPStonesheep - near all your posts follow the same predictable pattern.

A heading. (Often something absurdly vague and meandering like this was, and this one is again turned into English and turned into a QUESTION) and then in message body, simply a scan/s with no questions asked, and no caption on scans even as all scan should have.

Please take note of these points for future new threads.

5 posts on, I still have no idea what actual question you were asking. Such time wasting Train Wrecks are avoided with savvy first posts. :!: :!: :!:

Check the perforations. It certainly looks like it.

Stamp is printed back-to-back with no gum on either side.

I think AMark's comments are quite appropriate in this case.
