Transvaal,  1885,  5 Pounds, 2009  SAC no. 190,  deep green,superb mm. 

Please note that I am selling the stamp on the left of the photo,  the marginal stamp is included in the photo for comparison only ( the marginal stamp is a forgery ).i am not selling the marginal forgery copy

As the majority of the catalogues state that most of the copies of the Transvaal 5 POUNDS that are on the market are either forgeries or reprints, I enclose  a photo of a forgery ( the marginal stamp ), as the catalogues say that the only way to see the difference is to compare it with the original. They also include the following guidelines re: the forgery.

1. Paper is whiter and thinner.

2. Perforation 12 and a half, LARGE ROUND HOLES.

3. Colour is dull and has no lustre.

These are the on all the forgery reprints.

I hope the difference in these two stamps is quite noticeable.

Please note that the last time a decent copy of this stamp was offered at auction, it was sold overseas more than 15 years ago and sold for 3 250 Pounds. / +

Please refer to image inlay for full details, if still unsure or unclear please do not hesitate to ask me a question as I cannot be held responsible for any errors that are visible on the image and are not noticed before purchase

I have listed all the guidelines above so any potential buyers can make up their own mind as to the authenticity of this stamp, as there is no certificate included.
