I am pretty sure this is a #7, not sure if it could be a variations, "A, B, or C"

There is no black frame around cross.
Any help with the color identification would be much appreciated.

Scan



Thank you.

"PP" is a known cancel on the Swiss 1850 issue, I don't know what it stands for. (EDIT to add: looks like PeterT got it, "port payť", post paid.)

NanoPhilatelic, your pair looks like a crude forgery to me. Here are some genuine stamps of this issue to compare:

I gotta ask, where do you get all of these fakes? Do you buy large reference collections, or what?

Hey Guys: Just don't say it is a fake and then say nothings more.
If you think a stamp, cancel or overprint is a fake... tell us why.

Timm,

That would be really nice. But good explanations takes good amount of time, and giving explanation to every Nano's post alone would be a full time job.

It is a waste of time to help some people ,spend 1/2 hour taken apart a album and scanning a page of real stamps and then they don't even thank you and even worst when someone uses what you posted as a explainion to others without thanking you for the pictures . After a while you say less and don't waste time with people .

I agree with Timm it is useful if people can say why they conclude something is a fake or whatever.

would agree with Floortrader in this case.

i do give the reasons to my oppinion, but it seems this person doesn't want to hear something isn't as he hoped.

i also have a hunch that many of these stamps aren't his, and that he just wants oppinions so he doesn't buy something that's not worth it, which is a clear misuse of peoples knowledge and good will.

Sorsh, I own all of the stamps I posted on here. In fact I will retake pictures of everything I posted just to prove it. Why do I need to prove myself to you anyway.

First of all; the first thing to look for in the Rayon stamps is the background line work.
They have to fit into one of the positions in the sheet.In these stamps the lines are
identical thus a obvious forgery pair.You can see it if you look carefully in each stamp.
A close up of just the bottom is enough.
