All,

I am trying to gather together all the information I can regarding forgeries of Malayan stamps and postmarks, with the vague intention of putting together a comprehensive, pictorial article on Malayan stamp forgeries.
I would be most grateful to any member who can post scans of known forgeries to this thread. I have a copy of 'The Forged Stamps of all Countries' to start me on my way, but that only mentions Labuan, N. Borneo and Sarawak. Looking at http://www.filatelia.fi/forglinks/forged-stamps-j.html, I can see that forgries were made for most of the states, but unfortunately I have none, (yet, (that I know of)). Looking through the TMP index I can see there have been many articles on forgeries, (or that at least mention them), but most of these were written some time before I joined the society so I have no copies of them. :(

Can you help?

I have a couple of Malacca Chops on blocks of 4 which I thought could not be forgeries . They came back with BPA pink slips.

Do you ant the scans?

Hi Viswa,
oh dear both the 'chop' on the malacca block and the 'postmark' are forged.

Just in case any MSG member didn't already know, BPA certificates in PINK mean forged.
Genuine items get white certificates.

Only mentioning this as not long ago I saw a lot on ebay, described as 'with BPA certificate' and the vendor then illustrated a pink certificate !! :roll:

Hello Susan,

I wonder whether you saw this jem.

This came up in the ebay a few years back. I and Andrew spotted and questioned the seller about its provenance and he quietly withdrew the item


Regards
Viswa

You may also want to look at the book "Madame Joseph Revisited", published by RPSL.
