I've been told that the next stamp is a postal forgery:


(Postal forgery)

This postal forgery is described in 'Postal Forgeries of the World' by H.G. Leslie Fletcher. It is lithographed instead of engraved resulting in a bad quality of the finer details of the stamp, such as the central dragon and the lined background. It is also printed on much thinner paper than the genuine stamp.
