Hi all ,

I thought some of you would be interested in a stamp I recently got on an envelope .

It’s a forgery : things to notice are the design is composed of lines rather than dots , the whole image is rather fuzzy . The 2nd figure is poorly done & many of the letters are not sharp or clear, particularly the O in front of the queens throat . Also there are no phosphor bands .

Hey Trevor, interesting! I'm curious though about how and where the forgers are able to get the equipment, for instance, that allows them to do the security tab-thingies?

Are the perforations correct?

Wow, where there's a will there's a way I guess.
