Bill,

If you want us to think forgery, should we not have an example against which we can compare?:)

Yes, the link is broken. Copy the entire string of text into your browser's address window and it should be okay.

Gary !!! Tut tut tut - Now would I want you to think that!!???
Although I'd dearly love some more nice genuine Shanghai cancels on the Charity issues on piece... (tut@us postmark bods). Here's a copy - sorry not on a cover - of the late type 'a' cyrillic Shanghai and I'm sure its a genuine example on a large block. There may be other types but who knows???

Well Gary, the thicker 'a' cancel and the thinner 'v' cancel, but you can see - even from the drawing - the symmetrical lettering in the dual ring cds' - not shown in the cds in the original posting link example.

(Figures ex BSRP's T&S - Stamps of the Russian Empire used abroad Part IV pg 356)
