Expertising marks/valid or bogus?


I am currently being offered CO1-4 airmails w/these marks.

1.j. stowlow
2. Large "S" with "Ph. A." inside first curve and "USSR" inside second curve
3. Large horizontal "C" with something like "CCCP" inside the. "C"
Under this inside the "C" is Zzfvm/CC"
Do any of these marks seem OK? I would like to avoid certifying these if possible.
Any thoughts?
Thanks much!

Dave

Hello Dave.

some of those marks were forged as well.
1st one looks like Stolow guarantee mark - found on forgeries.
2nd looks like Soviet Philatelic Organization guarantee mark - this was forged as well.
3. This one is similar to # 2 - loooks more legit - did not see much forgeries of this one.
Cheers,
Andrew
