Happy New Year to all the community!

Getting back into Japanese stamps lately...I have three of the 1st Air mail stamps in used condition. I hold them as forgeries until told otherwise.

Might any of you have any information about these stamps? how to spot forgeries? Their usage? etc.

Thank you in advance.

This is a postage stamp issued for the Tokyo-Osaka test flight conducted by the Imperial Flight Association in October 1919.
The genuine overprints have very fine lines.


Genuine stamps are highly valuable because it was sold only in 37 post offices in Tokyo and Osaka the day when the flight mail was accepted and for the 3 days following only.

One of my eBay purchases that arrived today is a Fumi Card depicting the first four Japanese postage stamps, which were issued on 20 April 1871.

Fumi Cards were prepaid cards (similar to Japanese telephone cards, Quo Cards, etc.) that could be used to purchase stamps and postal stationery at Japanese post offices; the word fumi means 'letter' or 'note'. This card is one of the 17 designs issued at the start of the program on 1 April 1989. 175,000 cards were printed with this particular design.

Sales of Fumi Cards ended with the reorganization of the postal system as Japan Post on 1 April 2003. They continued to be valid until 30 September 2006, when Japan Post ceased to be a government-owned entity, but it was still possible to get refunds for unused cards until 30 September 2011.

The pinhole above the zero indicates that the card's 3000 value was used in full.

hi guys,
I'm putting together a small collection of japan stamps(not buying just using what I got)
its possible that I have a few nice cancellations but they could be fake!(nothing too fancy)
id like to detail as much as I could about the few I have and make a nice little book, why not
Not sure its polite to post and ask so much, this week I've had some time... sorry
though trying to learn and help (should just leave it to the pros)heck I'm horrible at asking questions, writing them and worse at explaining things!
i only had a old (1965) scott to use and SCF but ill made it work till I can get to the library and get a newer scott then ill update the numbers and separate there year and what have you.
alright enough blah blah
though a little embarrassed seeing the pages are defiantly not what I would like them to look like ATM (out dated #'s, sloppy lables and well most look empty)
I'm wondering if its ok to post a couple picture of some pages?
and maybe get some feed back or information.
