Congratulations in your good fortune.

May I ask how you acquired these in the first place?
Don't tell me in a garage sale.

Was this Robert Brunel the person you mentioned in a previous post the one who found them genuine.

If someone's offering you 1,000 a piece, you should jump on that. Mint copies of 5a typically sell for 100-200 at auction, and 5b typically bring 750-1,000.

At first blush, it didn't seem quite right, but on further reflection...

Really special pieces often get traded up the food chain by buyers with more information buying from sellers with less information. It feels sort of 'funny' that the person whose opinion you are buying is telling you that they are genuine but also wants to pay what seems like an above-market price for them (but probably isn't).

If he has shared all the reasons why they are special (to him) and you are comfortable with the quick strike, then I suppose there is no issue.

Maybe the right answer is that he is only being asked if they are genuine or not, and beyond that, seller beware.

Whether you sell or hold, congratulations on the find. Apparently, you are that lucky.

I should note that if the gum is intact, these should bring more than market. These are typically missing the gum, plus these copies have a margin with notations. And Brunel has a good reputation within the field.

It appears to be a forgery. If you could post a clearer scan of the front I could point out a few of the things that give me pause.
