FYI,
Rob has posted in another forum that his red overprint (shown here and on Page 1 of this thread) has been identified as a forgery.

Hi Don

Wrong stamp, that one is authentic, it is the Queen Elizabeth 1d trial proof with red overprint that is the forgery. The stamp on the right with the black overprint is also a trial proof, it is authentic. It is the first time I have seen a B.C.O.F. trial proof with a forged overprint, it is so well done that the overprint looks very much like the real thing. The red and gold overprints are rarer than the trial proofs with a black overprint. I enlarged the images so everyone can see the fine detail of a master forger.

Hi Don

I'm glad to be back, I was quite ill for awhile, now that it's all in the past I have a little catching up to do with uploading new additions from my collection.
