Kharkov III Dzenis Forgeries Part I


Supposedly, of the three original hand stamps that made up the 9 different types, the third handstamp containing types g,h and i was cut up/disassembled and was use to produce these stamps. Generally the only way to differentiate the authentic vs. the late prints is the amount of wear/distortion of the Trident and that the ink is either very heavy, black or light gray.
