Forged Stamps of Bolivia

“The Spud Papers”

by Atlee, Pemberton & Earée


5, 10, 50, 100 & 500 Centavos


The lower banner-heads on the right- hand upper portion of the stamp reach to the extremity of the circle. The spear-heads above the top star upon each side are shapeless strokes. The lines in the central oval are very close together, and altogether the stamps have a finished look.


None of the banner-staffs on the right-hand side extend to the edge of the central disc. The staff-point above the uppermost star on the left of the stamp is well formed, and is forked to resemble a spear. The horizontal lines in the central design are coarse and far apart, and the Noah’s-ark looking sheep (if it is a sheep) is an object for commiseration.
