The Sixties Forgeries

Lebanon Philately reprint Fri May 12, 2006

Hi,
a) The sixties forgeries are forgeries made on a lot of sets
including, Cedars, Sidon castle, Lebanon views, dues stamps, Planes,
Airport, Byblos, Zbaide, Jounieh Bay, Serail, Tripoli castle, Ski,
….. They were made by some crooks (mainly dealers) in early sixties
, but quickly cancelled because of police descent. They are recognized
to a yellowish, poor quality paper, bad drawings, and a poor Beirut
cancellation….. But some dues stamps were not cancelled.
b) Michel list some of these forgeries (not all) [ ;) for doubters ].
c) this morning i found a superb MI427 Orange forged Cedar. It was of
good quality, not cancelled, exact perfs but the P.KOROLEFF was badly
printed. So the rules of bad quality in a) may not be sufficient.
d) Are these the last forged material in the 60s. Probably not.
Lately the APS withdrew a forged Paul VI visit (with no price) from
their store (recognized to the 3 spots on the front-head of the pope
and the cyan colour instead of violet).
e) It is recommended to have a set of these forgeries . Moustafa
(4wstamps) is proposing a lot on ebay. I can also send the complement
to Moustafa’s item.
Regards
Elie AOUAD

1950s forgeries

Lebanon Philately reprint Wed Jun 15, 2005

Dear all,

can any body elaborate about what exactly happened to the 1950s
forgeries? I know a little bit about the issue myself, i know that
when the police knew about the location, those who did the forgeries
spent days and nights using an ink seal (only one example) canceling
those stamps, i also know that the group went to jail..
My question is : What happened to those forgeries? were they really
burned? Is it true that it was very dangerous to exchange these
forgeries in the 1960s and 1970s?

any help is welcomed..

Quana-Cross Serie

Reprint from Lebanon Philately Sat Sep 25, 2004

Hello everybody
Also the analysis of Elie is very interesting, but we still are not answering the main question … How much of this stamp are available … And let us once “AS LEBANESE” forget the conspiracy theories …. Let’s talk facts … NO one knows how much of the Qana stamp were overprinted … The most reliable figure that I’ve got from a trusted person is around 3000
