Hi all-

I received these two stamps in an auction. I'm not at all expert on Swiss stamps. These were labeled as Sc 7 and 8 in the stock page in which I found them.

Are they real or are they forgeries? Any comments or assistance is welcome!

Most likely they are real, , the condition is the problem which puts them close to no value at all .

Yeah, they look 'good' to me, other than the condition issues. Those two are the two easiest to find and typically sell for well under catalog. If I saw those offered for more than $10 for the pair I'd pass even if I didn't already have them. Kiloware salting fodder IMHO.
