Forgeries of the Great Britain 2s Brown of 1880

Bob Galland & Karl-Albert Louis



In stock

This book describes our current knowledge of forgeries of the 2s brown stamp of 1880. We have carried out a thorough literature search (figures in brackets in the text refer to numbers in the list of References) and examined institutional and private collections, dealers’ stocks and archives in order to establish as large a database as possible of these forgeries.

Based on corner letters, 16 forgeries have been identified; another is mentioned for completeness as it has been described though we have not seen an example. In total more than 150 examples of these 16 forgeries and their proofs are described in this book. More will exist. Nevertheless, they provide an indication of relative scarcity.
