I see all kinds of prices for these stamps on E-Bay. They are US postage dues that have a diagonal "PHILIPPINES" overprint. Usually when there is an overprint like this Scott's mentions the possibility of forgeries. They don't with these and I'm wondering if any one out there might be enough of an expert on these stamps to tell me if there are many fakes arpund. I know that fakes exist for most overprinted stamps of this time period and I wonder how careful I should be with these.

Don't be concerned about the variances in "asking" prices. Look at the "sold" prices to see what people are paying for the item.

I would be more concerned with regumming and reperfing. To my knowledge, the overprint is not known to be forged.

I really wish I hadn't looked at the sold prices! That usually doesn't happen when I want something!!! Question about regumming: I know how to tell after you buy, but then it's too late. How can you tell before you buy, do you just get assurances from the seller and hope you can return the item?

If the image lets you enlarge it, look at the perfs. Is there gum on the teeth? Are there no paper fibers on the perfs?

In the printing process, the gum is applied before the stamps are sent to the perforation machine. There would be no gum on the perfs.

In order to regum a stamp, it has to be washed clean, or the new gum won't adhere correctly to the paper. That process normally removed the paper fibers on the perfs.
