Postage Stamps used in the German Marshall Islands
Forged Type I Cancels
by Dirk H.R. Spennemann

The cancel on the 50 Pfg stamp shown below has a small 'c' instead of the year slug. The cancel is also very broad and fat in its impression and the two text lines 'Marschall' and 'Inseln" are not fully parallel. Further, the 'M' of 'Marschall' is out of alignment.
