Transvaal 1 Pound 1892 original, reprint or forgery? The postage stamp is from one good collection ... so I have a tutorial if it's original because this is not my collection area.

OK ----We need to clear the air about this stamp -----I am no expert ,never was and never will be ......I am a worldwide collector !!

First I read all the links here about this stamp and a lot of so call experts are giving their input .

So let me put up what I have ,since they don't seem to have the material . The first stamp and the fourth stamp are FAKES ,the second stamp and third stamps are real .

Notice the difference in the perforations not measure but the cut and how the holes are different .

Thank you all for your answers. I looked at the discussion sent by Perf12 - it helped me a lot. These are postage stamps that have no value without certification. In principle we can discuss whether or not she is right, but until she receives the official paper we consider them a reprint.

Two stamp of Transvaal: 1 Sh/Sc#220 and 5 Pnd./Sc#135.
Perforation 12 1/2 but different paper (1 Sh 0.04mm wove white -gray/
5 Pnd 0.07mm white paper)
The 1 Sh stamp have a bigger holes.
What you think?

The key to expertizing these stamps I believe they used the original plates. It is the color shade as you see in my scan of the 4
pence,then the paper differences and then the perforation hole pattern . I believe all three are important ,to make the buyer comfortable .

You are right floortrader ... and I would add ... a lot of experience.
It is important to hold the genuine and forged stamp.
I have stamps French colonies type Groupe (genuine and forgerie) and although I am a beginner collector I can easily identify them.
Unfortunately the forgeries are made on the valuable stamps that I will surely never have.
