1956 Double Overprint on Refugee issue of 1955
Genuine Double Overprints

Genuine Overprints. These have relatively clean strikes, the thickness of the lines is constant, and the ends of the lines have relatively square corners.

Fake Double Overprint

Fake Overprint. The lower overprint bar appears to be unevenly applied; the right side of the overprint is progressively thicker towards the end; and the left end is more rounded than the genuine overprints. Other fakes may show different characteristics. This stamp was obtained from a dealer as a fake.
