Ingermanland


I don't mean to imply that these are fogeries, I just have never seen those stamps used for some reason... Is the town name correct, at least?

The forgeries, (only one series recorded) are printed deeper colours with more varieties. They are in circulation as full sheets perf. and imperf. plus printer's waste. Get one good used copy and it will be a good reference against any of the forgeries

Thanks

I have just recently acquired a couple of good used examples and will attempt to attach them here.

The illustrated 50p forgery is relatively easy to spot since it is printed on white rather than cream paper.

It is interesting to note that although the stamps are postmarked Kirjasalo, the post office was actually safely located at the Rautu Railroad Station in what was then Finland.
