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.  i am  not  selling the marginal fogery copy

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 1 800 Pounds. / +

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.

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.
