Postage due stamps

1862 Inscription 'Vom Empfanger zahlbar Bayr. Posttaxe'

1 k black, perforated 3 k black, imperforated

  1 k (Perforated) black
  3 k (Imperf.) black
  3 k (Perforated) black

The imperforated stamps should have a silk thread and a watermark. I'm not sure if the shown imperforate stamp is genuine.

Value of the stamps

vc = very common
c  = common
*  = not so common
** = uncommon
*** = very uncommon

I think the next stamp is a forgery:

3 k black, imperforated

The next envelope is completely forged (envelope, stamps and cancels!) by Peter Winter. It is adressed to 'Landwirtschaftliche Verein ???? Sauschwabenheim bei Engelheim' (the text is difficult to read):

Note that this same forged envelope was also used for a Baden Stockach issue (imperforate 3 k stamp), source: 'House of Stamps 1988' catalogue.


Probably also Winter forgeries

Forged cancels also exist. Example:

Postage stamps (arms issue) in grey colour and with overprint ' Vom Empfänger zahlbar' in fancy letters were issued from 1876 onwards (listed under the postage stamps for easiness by me).

I have seen several reprints of these stamps. First of all, I have seen whole sheets of imperforate reprints of the 28 k value:

The forger Peter Winter has made forgeries of this stamp, example:


(Peter Winter forgeries, one with cancel 'FLUGPOST 17 10 12 MUNCHEN')

two stamps on postcard
(reduced size, on letter)

I have some postcards identical to the one above, all adressed to 'OTTO BICKEL Neu-Rahnsdorf bei Berlin Allemagne Germany' with additional overprint 'Verspatet Flugzeugunfall'. I've been told that these are forgeries (also made by Winter maybe?). The name, stamp, cancel and overprint are all placed at a slightly different place in these forgeries. I've also seen this postcard-forgery without the adress, overprints, cancel and additional stamp.
