Forgeries:

I have seen a forged so-called Madame Joseph cancel 'Ocean Is JA 14' on a 1 Pound stamp. I presume it has been made by removing the fiscal marking, the stamp itself is genuine:


(Forged Madame Joseph cancel)

 

In 1935 the next stamps were issued; 25 Years reign of King George V, view of Windsor castle

The following values exist: 1 p grey and blue, 1 1/2 p red and blue, 3 p blue and brown and 1 Sh lilac and black.
