Hello Everyone occasionally i come across a stamp that is difficult to identify, usually after hours on the net i find the identity of the stamp , this time i have a stamp in the Japanese pages of an old album that is strange to me and i cannot identify...it appears to be a French stamp with a Napoleon head but strangely the value appears as old Japanese SN , here is a photo of the stamp perhaps someone can help with the identity of it before i go crazy...Thanks Steve Sutton
You cannot detect a seam?
More important what would be the point of such a copy ...Thanks John...Steve
I've studied people's motivations, but all I got is "impress girlfriend."
It is clearly not a government issued postage stamp, so I can't explain the cancellation.
I suspect it was made in the USA in the 1930's. Where did you get it? Can you show a scan of the back? Thanks for sharing this.
As to motivation, "impress girlfriend" eventually gets replaced with "keep wife happy" but this could have been just perfecting a skill through practice.
But, I am no expert, just an observer.
I am going to read more about these stamps so thank you George for the pointers....Steve
