Singapore Postal Forgery

2/03/2012     Singapore

Old forgeries of Classics issues produced for collectors are very interesting yet relatively common. Forgeries made to deceive the postal authorities are much more unusual and are sought- after by collectors. The few so-called ‘postal forgeries’ created in the British Empire include this Singapore 1948 50c stamp, particularly desirable when postmarked on piece in conjunction with genuine stamps! Many Philatelists expand their collections beyond the basic stamp issues with postmarks, proofs, errors, shades, covers and other interesting items, certainly will add a flourish to the most advanced album!
