Re: Helloooooooooooo

As long as there have been Chinese Stamps there have been forgeries. We all get caught from time to time, it part of the challenge of collecting - and always has been.

Re: Help identifying revenue stamps

What you need is a copy of "Notes on Chinese Revenue Stamps" by Tom Shea. All the stamps you show are there together with some of the background.

Every China collector should have a copy! If you have problems finding it try the CSS Library https://www.chinastampsociety.org/library

Re: Forgeries Manchukuo

Here is something new - a forgery of a 1934 1½fen booklet by the eBay seller "wowblue". Sold as a copy. This seller seems to "copy" a wide range of material from different countries.

Re: Kerr 147.3-4, 3 or 4 different types?

I could only find three different types that were consistant over both 2f issues. However, like most people I only looked at the characters flagged up by Kerr.

There are certainly different inks used as you show in your image.

The difference in in the stem of the 中 Chung which normally has to small lines coming from the tail. I attach a pictures with an arrow, indicating the area missing these lines.

Re: MLO lots on eBay

Thanks for starting this thread, we need to comment on the latest ebay material. This seller needs a decent scanner. He has some stamps listed for Fa Ku that don't belong, the chop looks wrong but the images are too poor to see what they are (even though he has added some closeups recently). Note to...
