Sorting through a bag of world off-paper today, I came across these. I've never seen them before. There's a very good article on Dhufar issues here http://www.oman.org/phil85.htm

Does anyone else have some they can post?

Thanks Rod. These are listed in SG?? If so, I should amend my topic title, and move it out of the Cinderella thread!

Not Listed in Stanly Gibbons Jubilee,
I use SG as prefix for all my listings, even the bogus.
(If anyone asks, it is a "(S)teve (G)rey" listing.

There is about 200 in my Dhufar coll, but I haven't seen either yours or Dianne's before.

More issues of Clive Feigenbaum ??

Phew, I thought I had gone mad. Yes, Mr Fiegelbaum was a busy fellow, wasn't he? He could get a job with Australia Post producing meaningless stamps on a frequent basis!

I've got plenty of these...Few years back I bought a cheap m/s lot from eBay. It turned out to contain a 20cm thick "brick" of bogus m/s from Dhufar, State of Oman, Bernera Islands etc (all very likely products of Mr.Clive Feigenbaum)... Most were in untouched piles of 100ea, so very likely they were remainders of sale. A real goldmine of bogus so to speak. LOL.

On the topic of Clive Feigenbaum, an earlier post I made to RCSD is pertinent ...

---

Have a look at these fascinating legal synopses of an old tax shelter fraud case related to Scottish island "stamp" labels (Staffa, Bernera, Eynhallow, Grunay). The amounts of money supposedly changing hands is staggering (although it's clear that a very small percentage involved was actually cash, almost all of it was in promissory notes). Nearly a thousand stamp sheetlet masters selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars a piece. Quite the trick, convincing people that these labels would ever be worth anything remotely approaching the amounts claimed.

The legal details themselves aren't of interest (to me, at least), but the notion that any of this stuff would ever be worth $160 million is unbelievable.
