Hello, I have about 50 stamps that i purchased from someone in Greece several years ago. I was hoping you could tell me if they appear legitimate or are forgeries. Thank you, Jon

Sorry, Jon these are very crude "Laisvi Alsedziai" overprint forgeries. Welcome to the forum!

Thank you for the welcome and the info Audrius. I will destroy these. I think i will just destroy any that look like the same "stamp" was used. I may have a few that look different that I would like to post here to ask about. Thank you again, Jon

Jon,
here is how the real overprint looks like:

Hope this helps.
Enjoy collecting!
