Lot 317 Greece - Epirus SC#1-4 Forgery Cover of 1914 Chimarra Issue, Scott Cat $1,750 for a Genuine Cover, Net. Est. $30
An example of a forgery cover of the 1914 Chimarra issue, addressed to a hotel in Athens franked with Epirus #1-4 stamps. Scott cat. $17.50 for genuine, so our estimation for the forgery is $20-25. We researched this cover online and there was actually a website that showed an illustration of this cover and stated that any cover addressed to the individual shown is a forgery. Apparently 99.9% of the stamps of this issue on the market are forgeries of one kind or another. So this may be as close as you get to the real thing.
