Forged or Genuine?

Can you pick which stamp is the forged and which is genuine?

Forged or Genuine is a monthly feature testing your ability to identify stamps that are faked versus their genuine counterpart. Explore these monthly examples of fakes, forgeries and the genuine article to test your knowledge and to learn more about detecting the real article. Watch for new additions here and in the monthly members newsletter, APS Stamp Sense. These examples are provided by the APS Sales Division.
