Another fake #1

Seems that the Samovar here has dwindled to nothing, leaving those of us not on Facebook out in the cold. Oh well. Couldn't resist this one.
lot 143797049569

RUSSIA Classic Stamp Scott.1 10k Arms (1857) Mint MM Cat $62,500- RARE ORANGE8. It is a mere L9995.00

offered by Samwells-covers. It is either a trimmed 1865 10k (suggested by
the color) or a trimmed #2. It is dirty and has a small hole. The back is so scruffy, I can't make up my mind about the "watermark", if it really has one
or not, which would, of course decide the matter.

I wrote rather nicely to them that having this up was not doing their
reputation any good, and got two VERY huffy replies -- they threatened
"action" if I contacted them again. Amusingly, the automatic offer system
the proceeded to offer me a discount of L2000. Don't think I've ever
bought from them -- most of their material is over-priced. But at the same
time I am not aware of them as a major source of phony items.

Anyone else have experience with them?
