CEYLON 1883 SG148 Forgery

Stock Code: P212014053

1883 (-98) 4c rosy mauve, Sperati photo-litho FORGERY in the form of a "die proof" on wove (50x67mm), with BPA "SPERATI REPRODUCTION" handstamp on reverse, and the pencil signature of the master forger on face. A rare and attractive item. [This "die" was created to enable the production of forgeries of later scarce provisional surcharges involving this stamp, namely the now delisted "SG 177" (which in reality never existed genuine), and SG 206, 208 and 210.]
