A good day's work! GB, January 1891. Catalogue value well into four figures if kosher, although this also has serious creasing. Could you carefully place in a protective cover and scan the front and back of the stamp, handling with stamp tweezers/tongs?

No mention of the Hawaii stamp? Looks like Scott #13 and worth more than the GB stamp.

I'm just a little suspicious....

If it is a forgery, it sure is a good one. Perhaps icemarker is not familiar with the Hawaii stamp? I'd like to see what else is in that yard sale find - could be quite interesting.

thanks for the info.I normally only collect U.S. stamps so I thought 8$ was good for the collection I guess I was right, here some more that were on the same page.

The Great Britain 10/- QV and 10/- KGV I would say are genuine. The latter won't be worth a whole lot to a general collector because of the perfin but who knows if the perfin is rare?

The difference in catalogue and real world price for the former is usually enormous. It may be the scan but this stamp looks quite faded.

The France look OK - the 2F is the only one with any serious value, if it's Scott #126

The 1 GB QV stamp is known to have been forged but that's not to say this one is. The creases and what appears to be surface scuffing will reduce its value if genuine.

I have a note in a catalogue that says the 2 cent Hawaii in deep blue has not been seen in used condition and it's doubtful if it was issued.

Each stamp in question may need to go into a more specific category/forum.
