Forgeries: I know that at least the 3 k blue value has been forged by a forger from Hialeah Florida; large numbers of these forgeries are offered on Ebay. General remarks about these forgeries: the forger has probably used a computer scanner and printer, the details are mostly lost in most of his forgeries, the paper is modern and the size does in general not correspond to genuine stamps.
