I found these two unusual stamps over the weekend while going through a huge box lot. Image Not Found They are thin paper, imperforate stamps that look legitimate. They are inscribed "Canal Maritime de Suez." However, unable to identify and need help.

re: Suez Stamps: Cinderellas or Postage Issues?

The genuine stamps are listed in Gibbons, I don't know about Scott. However, there are more forgeries and reprints than originals.

Scott lists them in the Classic Specialized Catalogue, but not in the Standard Catalogue. They are #L1-L4.

Scott warns of forgeries, especially of the 40c value. The original plates for the 40c value were stolen and counterfeits printed from them.

The Serrane Guide has some details about the originals and forgeries, but your images are not good enough to make a comparison.
