Here is a questionable "no thunderbolts" stamp, possibly a Fournier forgery. Comments?

The cancellation certainly looks like the Fournier forgery of Riga:

Thanks, Ivo! I'll pressure the seller (Jan from Netherlands) who claims to "not know anything" to remove this and the other similiar item from ebay for violation of their policy.

This is an eBay item, why is it not in the eBay section?

I think it makes sense to group forgeries according developed categories regardless of their provenance for better organisation. Do you disagree?

eBay is eBay. List eBay under eBay.

I am sorry, Gary, I don't understand your point. Forgeries are forgeries, why not list them under forgeries???

The seller has removed both questionable items after being warned of the consequences! It is working! Somebody just has to make an effort :pumpup
