Once again, a rather bizarre bidding activity for two Central Lithuania overprint stamps with attached expert statement which clearly states that these overprints are fakes. Final closing price $181.86. :roll:

Good idea for business - preparing stamps on a printer and sending them to Ceremuga :D .

Carelessness of buyers is one thing. But I can't understand experts writting opinions on forgeries on the same paper they do for genuine stamps.

Such stamps should be marked on back to prevent them from being sold as genuine-looking in the future.
