I received a large selection of US Revenues from a consignor and these were included. These are outside my comfort zone and I would appreciate input.

Thanks
Ken

Virtually all the part perfs are bogus, and many don't exist in the orientation shown. All the "part perf" 2nd-issue and proprietary don't exist. They're trimmed singles.

Somebody had fun with scissors without knowing the proper orientation or even the existence of particular part perfs.

Basically the first 3 stamps in the first image are possibly genuine, as is the 5c Inland Exchange in the second image, but everything else I wouldn't touch. Images are too small to confirm legitimacy of anything shown.

Personally, I would never offer such a lot, nor would I want to be connected with it. It's almost entirely fabricated items.

This post had me reflecting on how fortunate we all are,
in days past, these would sit in an album, and we would be hesitant to really know what we had, or take months in written consultation.
Today, we get the good oil, from experienced collectors, as a "same day service"
We are, indeed lucky little Vegemiters.

The $1.50 imperf is the only stamp on the first card likely to be genuine. The two 5 cent stamps on the second row of the second card are the only stamps that might be genuine. The whole third card is fakes.

The 25 cent Insurance on page 1 has a cool cancel on it. Too bad someone tried to make it a part perf.
