Comparative Stamp Forgery
Identification Site


This site shows philatelic stamp fakes and forgeries by country and year of issue. You can click on a country name to see a thumbnail catalog of that countries issues and then select a stamp by clicking on that postage stamp. Alternately, you can first click on a year of issue and then select the stamp from there. Clicking on a stamp will bring more detail deeper in the tree. Check back often as this Philatelic Stamp Forgery site is new regularly. Forgers covered are Sperati, Fournier, Spiro, Oneglia and others.

This site is intended to be educational, informing viewers of common forgeries and showing their characteristics, primarily by comparison. This site is not intended to be used to certify genuine original stamps, as that can only be done by comparison face to face with genuine reference stamps and forgeries by an expert.

We now have available the entire Fournier Album on CD. Click the link to the left to see a sneak preview.
