Hi folks,
I have run across 3 stamps on which I would appreciate some input on.

First, let me say that these 3 stamps came from two different albums and the albums had been touched in over 50 years when I acquired them.
Second, I am a novice at this.
Third, I only have a 2016 Scott US Pocket Catalog.

I have a 610 and two either 611 or 612. Possible fakes on all three, I don't know.

First image is the fronts of the 3.
Second is the backs of the 3 in the same order.
Third is the perf gauge under the used stamp.
The fourth is the perf gauge under the new stamp. This is questionable as to whether this is new or not.

Chances are at least 2 of these are fakes from the look of the perfs.

Tell me what you think these are. I know it is hard to tell without seeing them in person. Sterling stamp is not far from me and I will take them in on Monday for his opinion. For all I know, he might be a member here.

Do you think these are fakes from the images?

By the way, these are photos, not a scan. I scan if that works better. Just let me know.

Thanks,
Chris

You should post this in the U.S section . The responds will be better .Also please use better title descriptions. Nobody and me included knows what a FAKE 612 is ,I got 260 countries that I collect so I don't know what a 612 is .

612 is the rotary press perf 10, which you are not showing. All three of these stamps are flat plate. The imperf is 611; the other two are 610. If the damaged stamp is unused you can use it for postage. They are all genuine.
