Hello all RSA collectors

 

Just look at this rarity. A RARE missing colour.

 

Offers around R6000-00 will be considered. Only buyers with a BoB rating of 100% positive need apply.

Or rather not.

 

Fact is, this item was forgotten in my Little Golf. It has been in the sun inside a protective sleeve for about three weeks. Faded by the sun.

 

It is worth about 50c per stamp – the current face value.

 

So please beware. Unless you are 100% certain of what you are doing, never buy a Missing Colour unless “subject to certificate” or rather with a certificate.

 

Just a warning.

 

Keep well and regards

 

Jacques

Until here I would have laughed at you or though you lost a marble..haha:blink1:

 

Yes buyers should be cautious,I also see a lot of Transvaal forgeries,of which the sellers are clearly NOT aware.They must think they struck gold.

Hello JB

 

Yes, and what many collectors do not realise is that many illustrations in many catalogues, simply qualify some stamps as definite forgeries. Very often the stamp might pass the “illustrated test”, but there might be other characteristics that might still prove that the stamp is in fact a forgery.

 

So the illustration might prove that the stamp is a forgery. It does not prove that the stamp is genuine!

 

Keep well and regards

Not AWARE, and too LAZY to become aware- Good information is available in Catalogues, Handbooks and past copies of SA Philatelist, Transvaal

Philatelist etc. If it is an expensive stamp, odds are that without a recent certificate it is likely to be a dud reprint!

Hi Jacques, would you have preferred me to use something less common, like the illustrated:58f5a743f0578_TvlEdwINVERT.jpg.fabd1b2d7b57c31e3fe489643548335f.jpgPlease choose a date for the postmark!

Hello Charles

 

Any date before 1910 will suit me fine.

 

But please try to beat this one. Have you ever seen the error of colour in a pair like this?

Merry Christmas
