George Washington 1847 USA stamps

Recently I saw 10 cents George Washington stamp of USA issued in 1847 and I was wondering whether this is Genuine or Forgery?

Why I thought about this, because we all know what's going in 1948 Gandhi stamps.!! There are more forgery of 1948 Gandhi stamps from India than genuine. (It's like all 1948 Gandhi stamps with 10 Rupees value are forged.)

This stamp is for sale on eBay by USA eBay seller "victoire1"with stamp location in Belgium, which was offered for $1150.!! 

This is good for eBay shareholders as they will get commission around (7-10%) from eBay and PayPal, which will be around 70-100$.!! (Disclosure :- I am currently holding eBay stock in my personal account.)

$1150 is lot of money if you consider how easy is to make this kind of stamps and sell it by applying fake/forged rubber stamp.!!

It's more easier than forging Coach/Burberry ladies purse or Rolex watches or Nike shoes as it will required lot of machineries and different raw material, but to make a stamp just photocopy it or print it on piece of paper.

Older the stamp it's more easier to forged because it's very less precision is required and if it is imperf stamp then it's even more easier.

Also forged rubber stamp are also very simple with lines or lines with number.

This is common practice in 1948 Gandhi Service stamp with Governor General PO rubber stamp or any British India King George stamps or King Edward stamps or Queen Victoria stamps.!!

So my guess (my personal opinion) is chances are very high for George Washington stamps.

Also you don't have to mentioned about stamp too much. Just mentioned it as "See Scan" or don't even have to mention other things so you buyer will not find more information.

But another thing to notice it has "1 offer". It's another way to make you think that stamp is genuine and collectors are really interested in this stamp.!!

Now look at the following forgery stamps and you decide what are the chance of this 1847 George Washington stamps is forged by just applying Red Grid rubber stamp on scott#2 stamps.

All of the following USA stamps of Washington as well as other founders of America are forged.!!

Yes it's forged if seller don't mentioned it as Replica or  Copy or Forgery.

Now if you apply forged rubber stamp similar to used in 1847 by copying from some philatelic book or picture and apply on this than you can basically cheat people and make lot of money.!!!

Thank god seller is mentioning this and selling as forgery stamps for $10 for only 22 stamps which are some of the rare stamps of USA.

Now look at the following forgery in Gandhi stamps as well as other British India stamps and see what are possibilities in this Washington stamps of USA issued in 1847.

It looks like FAKE or Forged is a way to go in Indian Philately especially in British India, Indian Princely states and 1948 Gandhi Stamps as well as other Gandhi Philatelic material.!!

Following blog post will explain you that indeed that Indian Stamps and Philately (British India and 1948 Gandhi Stamps) needs to be examined before you even think about buying it.

Forgery in Indian Philately as well as 1854 Queen Victoria stamps.
Beware of First Aerial Mail.
King Edward stamp and Gandhi Stamps.!!
Gandhi Stamps and Independence of India. (shameless act !!)
A Hobby in Decline.!!

Recently I saw 2 auction of forged cancellation of East India stamp and Queen Victoria stamps were selling with forged cancellation. (Of course seller mentioned this are FAKE or Forged philatelic material otherwise I will not know.!!, also it's selling at very minimum price. I saw Gandhi forged stamps sold for $1000!! which was also FAKE(shill bidding).!!)

This are Forged cancellation on East India Company stamp from Penang Octagonal cancellation and Sungei Ujong Chop cancellation.!!! on Queen Victoria stamps, King George V stamps.!!

So don't you see similarity with Gandhi Philately material.!! Following cancellation  are some of the  FAKE or FORGED special cancellation, postmark cancellation or local post office cancellation. It's just a RUBBER STAMP which my kids use to play to make art work.!! such as butterflies, rainbow, animals, etc.!!

Read my blog post about following FAKE AND FORGED Gandhi stamps and philatelic cancellation.

Let me make sure that I am not telling that this is forged stamps. I am just comparing with other stamps and letting you know possibilities so you can think before you buy it, as you have to pay money. (not me!!). I am just happy if my eBay stock goes up.!!

What do you think if  apply all this in George Washington stamps of USA issued in 1847. Don't you think chances are very very high.

I hope this will help you to collect USA stamps of George Washington issued in 1847.
