C17 forgery-prelure paper


The forgery does not show the deep indentation between trees 2 and 3 on the left. I have 3 prelure paper stamps all appearing as the described forgeries as above.
Is the prelure issue forged? Was it ever issued genuine? Due to the paper might the lack of indentation between trees 2 and 3 be secondary to the prelure paper?

Ceresa in his handbook (Vol. V the RFSFR, Section C2, p.315 describes a forgery, paper .06 mm., and it is translucent. He also says this forgery is also smaller than the genuine. (27 X 37 mm. vs 27 X 37.2 mm. for the genuine).

That might be your pelure paper.

C 17 forgery-additional information


Thank you for the further information. I have the Ceresa book. The second vertical forgery is described as you noted as being on translucent paper and 0.06 mm. Additionally the bottom printing has a "shadow" or double printing effect. I have this stamp.
The assumed forgery I am questioning looks like the First Vertical forgery with no details on the background tree silhouettes. However it is on prelure paper with a thickness of 0.058 mm. Any help here?
