FORGERIES TURKEY & THESSALY EARLY ISSUES by Billig * REPRINT
Country: TURKEY
Condition: FORGERIES TURKEY & THESSALY EARLY ISSUES by Billig * REPRINT
Description: IMPORTANT NOTICE In quite a few instances the clues' numbers placed on the sides of the illustrations were positioned by Billig in problematic spots or weakly struck. Additionally, photography limitations of some 75 years ago made some of the said numbers not always clearly legible. Scholars who have the 1937 edition can easily verify the accuracy of this statement. The publisher of this reprint has done his best to tackle the problem and has achieved some improvement here and there. [See the 3rd scan for exemplification] Despite the slight drawback inherent with the original edition, which nevertheless served three generations of philatelists well, this reprint is undoubtedly a valid tool for those who want to detect the forgeries of early stamps of Turkey and Thessaly. ********************************************************** Otto E.
