Confused


In http://www.rossica.org/Samovar/viewthread.php?tid=78
Andrey (Major Philatelist) has some scans of Scott B14, B15 and B16. His scans (i.e. http://www.rossica.org/Samovar/files.php?pid=133&aid=63 and http://www.rossica.org/Samovar/files.php?pid=135&aid=65)
indicate that the stamps with the shadow of the stick NOT connected to the stick is the genuine stamp. I thought it was the other way around according to other sources?

From what I can see on the green image (the lower one does not open, but I assume it is similar) the stick and the shadow are connected on all of these stamps. These particular forgeries are characterized by other features - extremely crude printing with details obscured by excess of ink.

This is from the catalog I wrote some time ago ...

There are two forgeries of the red, green, and brown stamps:

Type 1)

Fairly accurate copy of the original - the most obvious difference being the gap between the walking stick and the start of the shadow. The size of this forgery matches the size of the original (55.5 mm x 34 mm).


Type 2)

Very rough impression on very white thin paper - size of stamp is 55 x 34 mm (genuine stamp is 55.5 x 34 mm).
