I have not worked on or seen my EGYPT collection in 5 years ,but those first issues look wrong . The overprints are too heavy and stamps have a poor background design .

I'll wait to see whats others say .

For instance here is your 4.2. A real stamp on the left.
You can see that your stamp is a forgery (ovpt. included).
Check the details and it becomes very evident.Your stamp
was trimmed to make beleive it is an imperf variety.

Hi Perf12

Thanks for the reply very enlightening... didn't think of inkjet printer... but it would make sense with tha pale color. The stamp have the correct watermark though! I don't know how much effort would be put in it if the stamp was made with a printer or how difficault it is to fake watermarks?

Any thoughts on the rest?

Henrik :-)

Thank you Perf12

Very interesting.. unfortunately I cannot make a match between my stamp and one of the 10 types. Also the overprint does not match. But I find it very difficult to do the matching so maybe om wrong??
