Attached is a perf forgery? or whatever you want to call it from Georgia. I have had it sitting around in my accumulation box for years. Just now getting around to looking to seeing what is in the box.

Someone took an imperf stamp (Georgia 54a) and used scissors to make the unusual perferations. I checked both my reference books and Andrey before coming to this conclusion and posting it here. What a shame ruining a nice stamp as this because I believe the overprint is genuine.:(

Since the "cuts" are obviously not perforations, can we simply say this is an altered imperforate stamp?
