Hello everyone,

I have this cover with a 2 cent QE II stamp from Saint Lucia 1953. That is what I know.

I searched but cannot find the date of issue of this stamp.

I know the cover says FDC, but I cannot find a second example.

Can anyone confirm the date of 28th of October 1953?

Thank you.

Johan

The date is correct per the Gibbons catalog. This was the first of the set issued with other values issued on a range of dates over years. Why suspect fraud here?

Hello hy-brasil.

Thank you for your answer.

I did not think it was incorrect.

I simply could not find a second example of this single stamp on fdc. Which also meant that I could not varify the date.

kind regards,

johan.

Hello perf12,

That particular fdc with that stamp I did find.

It seems that there are a lot of these on offer.
