Overprints | Batum
Aloe Trees | North Borneo 1888-1892 | Samoa
As this site develops, selected notes on various countries
will appear, with a focus on proper identification and fakes.
Some initial topics planned are the Batum aloe tree “Georgian Prince” and
other forgeries, along with the “British Occupation” forgeries. The early
North Borneo low value coat of arms issues are also a fun area to study, as many
of the stamps offered on the market today are faked. Many copies offered of the
first Swaziland issue have been forged on reprinted Transvaal stamps.
