Jeff, I'd love to read that American Philatelist article if you can post it. I've seen these Global Phantoms a lot on eBay, they're at times more abundant than the real thing. But if they have an interesting history, I'm interested. Knowledge is power, right?

OK, I managed to find it although it's 4:06 in the morning! lol Anyhow it's in the January 2011 "Lunar New Year" edition on page 26-30 I don't believe I can scan it or anything as it may be protected by license but I could send it along and let you read it or you could pick it up at the library or maybe it's online somewhere? I'll look - WELL I'LL BE DARNED ~ I FOUND IT!

Although unrelated to confederate forgeries, I found this a fascinating read as well!

Jeff, thanks for posting those articles. Turns out I have read the first one before, and have even posted it on other threads, but I does make a great addition to this one.
And I thoroughly enjoyed the other article as well. The more info the merrier!

Hey James...I just picked these up for a pittance!(like $3.50 shipped!)
Anything good here? I just liked how they looked. Sort of an impulse buy! ha-ha!

Good morning Jeff.
I'm at work so cant really chat about these, but they look interesting. The 10 Davis singles are all altered plates (long story, I think there may be another thread about them). That group of 6 looks the most interesting, I think. Definitely a forgery I recognize. Check that article you sent about forgeries, I think you may find an image of that one there.
The groups of 3s may be Springfields, but again, only spitballing here.
That old revenue you'll probably find in the back of your Scott's Specialized. Nice purchase.

Jeff your sheet of 6 Jefferson's (Thomas, not Davis) appears to be a Samual Upham forgery, or reproductions of one. The colour seems off, but then that image doesn't look reliable colour wise anyway.
See this website, second row, second from left.

The sheet of 6 is a modern reprint from an original Upham plate. The Altered Plate stamps in red and brown(poor printing)were printed by the Tatham Stamp & Coin Company from new dies. The other 5 Altered Plate stamps were made by George Linn of Ohio from a printing plate that contained two panes of 25 stamps. This plate was made by Linn in the 1920s. The groups of 3s look like Springfields facsimiles as Jamesw noted.

Thanks you two! I knew they was forgeries and fakes when I got them. When I get these in hand, like usual, I'll scan the more interesting ones.

I just woke up a little bit ago but thought I'd start the day with the Confederate forgery thread.



Here are my scans for your viewing pleasure!

Let's see if I got this right or not shall we?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The singles:

The 10 Davis singles are all "altered plates"



The strips:

Springfield fakes were created by H. E. MacIntosh, owner of the Tatham Stamp and Coin Co. to be used in his Tasco booklet. The booklet gave a history of the Confederate postal service, and the stamps were created to supplement the text. But MacIntosh's images were not taken from the original stamps, but from images published by Confederate expert August Dietz. The images were used without permission, and eventually Dietz confronted MacIntosh and informed him of his copyright infringement. The Tasco stamps were then marked on the back with the word 'Facsimile' and later still numbered, to avoid a lawsuit.
These stamps were printed in full sheets of 25. The booklet containing singles sold originally for 35.




The block:

This sheet of 6 is a modern reprint from an original Upham plate.

OK, I noticed that these two are quite a bit different than the others? I'll hazard an educated guess here- A different forger perhaps? Anyone know what these are? Thank you.
