Have you looked at the book Album Weeds? That may be worth consulting based on some of your past posts that I've seen.

It's well worth the effort to gain knowledge in the hobby.

I just looked at the Album Weeds document referred to in an earlier post of yours. The 5th stamp on the top row is discussed thoroughly in that book (starting at page 490). On page 495 it is stated that a forged postmark are the letters in very large capitals. That book is a good read and probably would answer most of your questions.

If you have any early Spanish stamps in there, I may be able to help with those.

Your scans are too small for me to give a opinion . Scan one at a time in larger pictures . There are some very good forgeries of early Swiss.

You have quite the forgery and fake collection going on. Time to identify them and the artists.

Thanks to everyone for their help. most are forgeries, I figured as much. I am going to identify the artists to these fakes, maybe worth a couple bucks a piece.

----Forgeries come in two kinds ,the old classics and the modern computer printed garbage . The modern stuff, it is worth 10 cents apiece at most . The old classics sell for a few bucks each .If you have a large collection try selling it all intact because if you try for a fix price per each ,some will sell and then your stuck with others .
