Colombia Scott 268

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.

View The Hint

Forgery: The “D” of the “DE” just above the eagle’s head is relatively tall and thin. The outer frameline at the left does not extend below the frameline at the bottom of the stamp. Genuine: The “D” of “DE” is short and squat and has the appearance of being almost square. There is a slight extension of the left outer frameline below the bottom frameline in the bottom-left corner of the stamp.

A is the genuine stamp
