I found these in a decent collection but it is very unusual to find these 3 in a Big Blue collection so I'm suspicious.

Is there a good online reference for identification of these forgeries?








Thanks

Ken

KRelyea,

Here are a couple for starters:

http://stampforgeries.com/forged-st...-spud-paper/

There is also a section on Brazil in "Album Weeds" http://stampforgeries.com/album-weeds-brazil/ br /
Hope this helps
Dan

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

Those appear to be, ahem, "copies" and are most likely not real.

Yup, all three are fairly crude forgeries. Here are some real ones, click on the stamp to see a larger scan.
