I need C1 to complete my pre-1941 collection of Swiss airmails and need an opinion. Thanks! Wolf-==-

I don't believe that either is genuine. The spaces between inner and outer feathers is too wide and even as is the space between the inner feather ends and inner front edge of the wings.

Also, it's hard to tell from scans, but the genuine color for the 30c should be a darkish carmine red, and different from the 50c. These two appear to be in two different shades of red but if scanned at the same time (as they appear to be) a genuine 30c would be much darker.

Color is a issue as Hy-brasil said . The gaps between the feathers are too wide and the bolts on the center circle are not right. The curve of the bottom wings are more than on the originals .
