Hi all
In this (http://goscf.com/t/61401) thread I identified this stamp as 5 lepta green, Hellas 55 the Cream paper printings without CN. I at that point wondered about the the dot in one of the peals in left side of the peal ring. I have now studied a bit more and found that Alisaffi made forgeries of the 20 Lepta blue which have exact the same dot but it is not mentioned for other values than the 20 lepta. Can any buddy shed some light on this?

Hi; There are frequent dots in the pearls in this printing I find.
I don't think yours is a forgery..IMO
A couple of examples in a past Karamitsos sale:
