The are only a few forgeries of Antigua stamps. There are, however some dangerous fakes. This page will cover all of the fakes and forgeries in one place.
Forgeries Of "Jeens" Head Design
|These two forgeries of the "Jeens" head design were produced by the Spiro Brothers of Hamburg, Germany. They were printed in sheets of 25, perforated 13.|
Forgeries Of Victoria Key Plate Design
|These forgeries were produced by the Spiro Brothers of Hamburg, Germany.|
|These are faked imperforates. The one penny lilac-rose was made by applying a fake cancel on a plate proof (1863). The six pence yellow-green at right was apparently made from a similar plate proof of the 1863 issue (it bears a 1920 Royal Philatelic Society certificate stating that it is a genuine imperforate variety).|
|These fake one penny bisects are very convincing. Note however that they all bear the same fake cancel of "July 29 1889".|
|This fake has three different one penny stamps. It purports to be a bisect usage paying 2 1/2d rate. All cancels except "A02" at far left are fake. A genuine example of the 2 1/2 d. rate paid with a one penny bisect may be seen here.|
