I found these Persia stamps in a 1940s Junior album and I've written the Scott number next to each. I assume they're reprints/forgeries since the rest of the stamps in the album have minimal value. How can I tell if they are real or not? Thanks! - Troy

The top middle stamp, not mentioned at all in the link given, is unfortunately also a forgery. The genuine overprint is handstamped and not printed like this. Forgeries are common of both designs and outnumber genuine stamps by a wide margin.
