Cape of Good Hope



  1. I notice that the actual Sperati forgery you sold me a couple of years ago is still advertised by Filat . They should at least show a different copy . Incidentally , if you check the watermark of the forgery the crown is much simpler than that in the real stamp . So the paper was forged as well .

    I have managed to pick up several woodblocks and a mint unmounted 1871 1d Red with the watermark inverted from George Holschauer auctions .

  2. Hi Gil

    Thank you for drawing this to our attention. Turns out the whole trio of items of that particular order of yours had not been removed from the database.

    Interesting comment on the watermark difference on the forged paper. Next blog post will feature watermark items so “stay tuned”!

    As always, the goodies are on http://www.filat.ch
    Best. RJ.

    I have a stamp collection and I don’t know the value of all of them but some of them are rare collection items. I don’t know what to do with them and how I can sell them.

    • Hi Martie

      You can email me (carli@johnson.co.za) some scans of the rarer items and I will let you know if we would be interested or will be able to point you towards someone who might.
