I am reviewing stamps I received in a collection, and don't know a lot about the confederate stamps. I am reviewing a #13 that I found against one I am pretty certain is legitimate. The one on the left I believe is legitimate and the one on the right I am pretty suspicious of. However, what little I can find of the forgeries of this stamp show them to be pretty bad. On this stamp I can find no obvious differences other than paper is a bit more white. I think the scott forgeries were pretty close to accurate, but I didn't see any information on a forgery for this number. Any opinions on this one? Thanks!

No answer yet so here are two sites for reference as I know little of Confederate stamps. http://www.jlkstamps.com/fakes/fakecsa.htm http://www.csafakes.com/fakes13.htm

A quick look makes me think the one on the left is a Springfield facsimile and the stamp on the right looks genuine.

Both are good. No engraved forgeries of the 20 cent known.

Yes indeed both are Genuine. I have many of this issue and they are engraved. This is the important key. factor. Look at Trish Kauffman's site for a valuable tutorial.

No worries, we just try to mark it 'bumped' so other folks understand.
