I.F.S. BUNDI 1920 SG38 Forgery

Stock Code: P190010683

1920 (Sep) type F1 FORGERY of the 1914-41 "Sacred Cows" ½a black, tablets as type "C", in a COMPLETE SHEET of four, "unused". Storage toning at top as a result of deterioration of the thin paper, and slight separation, otherwise fine, and rare as a sheet. [The type F1 forgeries are known to have been distributed as new issues, supplied by the Bundi post office, apparently through the action of dishonest officials, but sheets are now virtually unobtainable. Benns (see pp. 44-47) had never seen one, and we have handled very few (usually just the ½a, 1a and 2a values) in the 33 years since his study was published, apart from an extraordinary set to 12a (with pairs of the 1r to 3r) which we sold in 2006.]
