RARE 1919 War Savings Counterfeit
First Time Offered – Limited Quantity

 
Scott assigns this stamp an E rarity, which means "probably equal to or fewer than 100" exist!  Counterfeit $5 US War Savings Stamps of the Series of 1919 were created by Joseph V. Zottarelli, Biagio Russo, and Nicalo Salupo in the 1920s.  The men were arrested November 15, 1924, after they were found in possession of the counterfeit stamps, and were sent to the Federal prison in Atlanta, Georgia.  I'll send you a copy a 1927 US Treasury Department letter summarizing the prosecutions.  It's a fun and interesting document to include in your collection.  Stamp has small scuffs.  Get yours now!
