Too bad the top two are hinged. If there are 4 there are probably more.

In almost 100 years since first being inverted surcharged, these are the first stamps to be certified as genuine. This was all prompted by an article in "Maple Leaves" entitled "Canada 1926 Provisional 2 Cents Surcharges on King George V- Admiral Issue", Maple Leaves, Vol 35, #4, Whole #346 (Oct 2017), p. 219(7) which got the attention of Ariel Hasid of WIP International who knew about this block of stamps with inverted surcharges and had it sent in to be expertized by APEX.

I suspect it will be obvious once I have been told but what is the "VCS Examination" on the cert ? I guess a high resolution and enlargement overlay .

Anthraquinone, VSC stands for Video Spectro Comparator, one of which is owned by the Vincent Graves Greene Philatelic Research Foundation. It is used for authenticating postal material as well as checking for other alterations or defects, etc. Attached is a screen grab from their site about the device. As a matter of fact, in the latest issue of Canadian Stamp News was part 3 of a story about what this device can do and discover.
