One comment on “Buzuluk zemstvo stamp forgeries on eBay”

  • This is interesting, I know i.b.redguy, so we can only hope he sold it by accident, and not deliberately.
    There are now many other ‘dealers’ on Ebay.com who ONLY sell ink-jet prints as genuine stamps, very active recently: antoniostamps, then chaykacy, stampseller84, but also a seller in Kiev, ‘qm400’ has started to sell ink jet prints, his tsar Nikolai abdication stamps were all ink jet print, not only the overprint, but even the stamps (and many other stamps too!)
    Another British seller who sells Russian bad ink jet prints as genuine is also : sussex-stamps.
