Gambia Scott 2

One of these stamps is genuine stamps and the other one is a forgery. Can you tell the difference?
If you are having trouble, see the "hints" and answer below.

The genuine shows embossing, usually a colored dot present on the chignon, pointed “A”, and a portrait height of 13.5 mm. The forgery has thicker letters with flat “A”s. The line below “GAMBIA” is thinner than in the genuine, the color dot is missing, and embossing is lacking.
