ST LUCIA 1883 SG35 Forgery by Sperati of QV 6d lilac

Stock Code: P234000378

1883-86 6d lilac, wmk CA, the dangerous photo-litho forgery by Sperati, "used" with forged "A11" cancel (type 1). Watermark and perforations are genuine, but the stamp impression (and cancel) are forged. Faintly toned, still a fine example. One of Sperati‘s last forgeries, made in Aug 1953, with the master forger's pencil signature on reverse. Ex Sir Gawaine Baillie (Sotheby's 17 Jan 2007, lot 752, realised £276).
