E-Bay forgeries Diterikhs


Fortunately nobody has bid on these. And at the opening bid prices, I hope nobody does.

I continue to be amazed at how one can say these overprints are good or bad when no evidence of postal use is included. Any overprint can be considered valid if there is no supporting valid usage. Please don't quote the limited literature. These items are speculative??

How do we tell that the overprint is not of RUSSPHIL or similar vintage? We are approaching 90 years since this took place and we still cannot definitely define real from not real.

Show me the philatelic evidence!

The Nikolaevsk issue is the questionable issue.:hair

The Diterikhs issue is very well documented as legitamate postage.:hop

I don't know that this wasn't produced by this person or that, it doesn't change the fact that the overprints aren't correct. :lecture

There are at least two German dealers on ebay that openly sell digital (?) forgeries. Both have $9.99 as a starting price for ALL their fakes.

This is what is incorrect, easy version.


Gary and anybody else who want some clues as to what to look for, I've tried making this as simple as possible.

Shown are 5 of the easier things to look at to at least eliminate possible forgeries. I use, as a general rule, at least 4 of these good characteristics to determine if I am going to buy a particular stamp.

:cool:

Although I can't tell for sure, but it appears to me that the frame is also too tall.

If it is a digital forgery, the maker could at least have based it on a genuine stamp!
