Back to stamp collecting in the COVID19 world- stuck in house all weekend!
these were given to me by relative. I wanted to give example of album I am dealing with so I scanned in page 2 of the album. The album is 19th century France only as well as French colonies 19th century only. I am trying to sort through this as many stamps misidentified, etc.
I took some stamps off of page 1 and scanned them.
I have done research- many of stamps have thins, small tears etc.
I am just trying to get stamps in their correct spots. And of course trying to identify fakes/forgeries.
Scott 1 10c Ceres: first stamp appears to have OG and is signed on back but I cannot make out signature. I think middle stamp with largest cancel is a forgery, but not sure? Are these France or French colonies, are they reprints?
40c and 25c appear very nice, are they reprints? is the 40c a French colony?
I am looking for some direction here. Any early France experts out there?
