Warning: Forgeries!

Forgeries of stamps have been around almost since collecting of them started. They are particularly prevalent in Chinese stamps. I try to exclude them from my listings. Please contact me if you see any problems. I will soon be adding articles with warnings about forgeries that are current in the market.
