OFS forgery??

Recommended Posts

JohnBenn

Hi

 

I would like to add this stamp for sale,and and some others, but I don't want to list it if it's a forgery and I don't state it as such.

 

This is a thick overprint with the stop after "R" missing.

But look at the "R" and the "d",they seem to have been double printed and cleaned.

 

Some advise would be appreciated thank you.

The OFS is world famous for forged donkeys and flowers and things. But stamps ? Must take great skill to

forge a stamp.

Don't give them ideas of donkeys on postal stamps.

Comrade Brother Wayne ! Many moons have passed since we last spoke. Trust all is well in

A donkey on a stamp ? For stubborn mail ?

John -

 

It's not uncommon to see these stamps with doubling of the "R" and "d". I have never seen a satisfactory reason given why only this part of the overprint is doubled. To me it proves more that the overprint is genuine rather than a forgery.
