Post subject:  Unofficial PROOF

Hi All,

Last week I noticed the KEVIII stamp with the word PROOF instead of postage on eBay. This morning I saw it on Arthur Ryan's list at 120 pounds.

SG is unequivocal in referring to it as a fake.

Since those unused/nonsensical Nazi wartime propaganda "forgeries" are currently being offered in three figure prices, and this stamp is also up there, it seems that at least some people take them seriously.

The Nazi "forgeries" are well written up, albeit anecdotally, I'm wondering whether there is any information about this KEVIII item...

Robin R.

Hi Robin,
This 'bogus' proof is generally accepted to have originated in the Netherlands.
The 'normal' advertised price for this one is £94.50 so far as I can ascertain.
Have often considered buying one myself just for interest but never got around to it.
