About as far back in the book as back of the book stamps can go, I think.

According to the article below, the printing plates and stamps were confiscated soon after their release, so the stamps shown here are probably somewhat rare.

An interesting story of counterfeit stamps (at least that's what I would call them based on the news article following the image). I wonder whatever happened to Mr. Gordon? He was obviously a stamp enthusiast, albeit a bit misguided and perhaps in need of a good dose of reality. Thanks for sharing! I love learning unusual pieces of postal history like this.

Yes, just bought them. But they haven't arrived yet from the seller.

Well that was VERY interesting indeed. The description of the guy was hilarious. I had never heard of these...I learn something every day on here. Thanks for sharing, Jim.
