This seller is offering several lots of cheap test stamps with "scarcer" colored defacement lines. These are all fake.

Here is an article about them:

Interesting. In general, I believe Northstamp is a respected dealer of Scandanavia. They may not know these are fakes.

I gave him the link from this thread. That may be one of the reasons Northstamp ended the listing.

JD is correct - these particular defacement lines are fake. I think they appeared around 2003 or so. There are no real silver ones, I don't think there are any real brown ones, there are real red ones and I think there are real blue one.
