(Forgeries)

Many forged stamps exist. In the book 'The forged stamps of all countries' by J.Dorn it is stated that the kopeck values should have 6 pearls over the square in the bottom right-hand corner. The 1 Rubel should have 8 pearls in the bottom left-hand corner. In the 3 Rubel none of the letters are touching each other. Finally the 5 Rubel has the 'T' and 'Y' connected.
