Looking at the fake stamp, the color appears to be faded. Is the size difference significant too? :question:

There are so many "wrong" things on the left stamp that it is hard to decide where to start... For starters look at the shape of ornaments in the corners and thickness of the font in words "Pochtovaya marka" for example.

I was considering buying this stamp on eBay - auction ending in just over 24 hours, however, looking at Andrey's examples of a genuine and forgery Scott #39, I'm actually thinking that this one is too - check the font letters carefully. Any comments would be helpful...!
