Image collection of the 5c w/o CONDOMINIUM (YT 58A, SG 32a) I saw in the last 12 years including the forgeries
--- You may want to find out which ones are not genuine -----

1920-24



First prize:

I agree with Jeff: a 1920 surcharge on a stamp cancelled 19 NOV 10 surely earns the Gold Medal: The "5c" is not too bad: toe of the 5 too high and/or stop too low.
FORGERY           No.59 forgery

No.59 fake



Good too:

This project from the art lessons in an elementary school earns second prize I think.
FORGERY           No.44 forgery

No.44 fake



Similar:
FORGERY           No.20 forgery

No.20 fake



And this one:
FORGERY           No.37 forgery

No.37 fake





Very dangerous:
FORGERY           No.42 forgery

No.42 fake
