I have a corner sheet of six stamps of some Danzig stamps including Scott 84, 89, and 92. The note in my 2017 catalog indicates there are imperforate of 83 and 85, but not of 84.
Anyone know anything about imperforate of Scott 84?

thanks

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking... are you trying to find out if Scott is wrong? It's not. No catalog (Scott, Michel, Y&T, etc) knows of/lists an imperf variety for the 1922 1.50Mk issue.

Here is a scan of the four corner sheets. There is gum on the back of each.

These are likely forgeries. Do they have a watermark or a light gray underprint:

Many values of this series are known imperf or without underprint. But none are known on unwatermarked paper. It's generally easy to see the watermark on Danzig stamps, just hold them up to the light.

Good idea. I checked all four looking at them with a 60 w lightbulb behind them. There is no evidence of any watermark, and the paper appeared mottled.

Don joe ---- Those are Hialeah Forgeries, the strong color plus your comment about the paper confirms them to me that those are from the city of Hialeah ,Florida

There is a whole series of stamps that came later with many improvements ,such as gum on the back and perforations ,plus different papers . The changes came after the Hialeah operation was closed down . Then we see different names were used like Unlimited Stamps ,HTD INVEST and JCSR on eBay ,then after a few month there was many new sellers coming into play ,then I quit keeping track of all of them .
