I thought I would alert the SCF community to the fact that hy-brasil, a well known poster on SCF, is now providing occasional contributions to the Big Blue 1840-1940 WW blog.

His initial contribution parses the genuine/forgery differences of the 1922 Pictorial issue of Armenia.

Example...


1922 Scott 302 400r blue & pink
"Soviet Symbols"

"The 400 rubles shows a hammer and sickle and star."


Genuine / Forgery
Green arrows point to dots, and lack of shading

"In the genuine stamp (left), the (pink) dotted decoration along either side fit the space they are given. In the forgeries, they do not. Registration (the proper alignment of the color plates) can be wildly variable in both genuine and forged so the dots may prove hard to use. But in the genuine, also note how the rings and leaves have heavy shading where they overlap."

Interested? Check out hy-brasil's post and all things 1840-1940 WW.

Great to read! Forgeries can be minefields indeed, and I've benefited from so many of your in-depth forgery posts before, so I'm really looking forward to more contributors on forgeries (and other topics)!

Great. I love pages about forgeries with illustrations. They're really helpful and they also help "train" the collector to be watchful about what they're buying.
