fake FDC last President Nguyen van Thieu stamps,I have the original ones

fake First day cover the last RSV President Nguyen van Thieu, I have the guine one.

One of our collectors seeking informations about Vietnam Fake coins. During my exploration via google type ” Ancient Coin” you will found in the picture site, many  fake china and vietnam coins made during last period of Dutch East indie in Indonesia, Japan alsomade the fake cash coin to used during japanese occupation in Java , but some official Indonesia cash coin with chinese char. were produced due to difficult to found the original Chinese or Vietnamese cash coin due to the political situation and communication that time but made in tins called pitis , someof the originil pitis were found from Palembang darusalam Kinmgdom, Bangka, Montrado  & another west Borneo chinese Kongsi . About this topic just in writting process be patient.

The modern fake coins in Indonesia still found in Antique Shop Surabaya street, the rare silver coin from Meiji yen and Dutch Willem I,Wilhelmina coronation 1898 also Hispand Globe coins, Chinese dragon cash coin, Mojopahit ancient coins . Indonesia law enforcement official seems to have given up to this case.

This situation same same in Canada (David Wels), David write about fake coins you can read full in his blog, some informations from him about E-bay protection against the fake coins:”How many buyers can recognize that they have been sold a fake or dishonesty described or “doctored” collectible ? If the answer is a few percent, it is clearly profitable for unscrupiduos seller to give them refunde, avoid negative feedback and go on fleeing those less perceptive. For years a forgery vendor centered in Toronto has been defrauding neophyte ancient coin collectors by offering fake ancient coins on EBay identies have been used by seller,who prepares them in advance trading in cheap items like postage stamps and move to another “clean”identity wherever a scan is discovered.Canadian law enforcement seems to have given up on this case, and so no longer have any serious intress in identifyingt and apprehending those responsibble”This situation same in Asian country like China,Hongkong and Indonesia, that is why collectors must be carefull if a rare unique coins,stamps or ceramic offered to you in cheapest or to high price ,the first in your mind say impossible the guinine items at that price, the fake always in bad condition but also in very good printing more best than the original item. One of This blog mission was to avoid the fake collections to grew up with show the original item through Artifact that found in the ground or from the sea, because several years ago noone collect artifact but I started early still found free or in very law price . Please collectors to look carefully every items show in collectors choice program and Artifact rare ceramic , also the postal history items in this blog because many fake found this day. Several month ago, a senior stamp dealer offer me the fake Chinese imperia Tzu Chi birthday stamps with  Faux stamped on that very are stamp, i told im this was fake (in france faux) stamp but he said he baought that stamps from in memoriam senior Indonesian collectors who stayed lng in Australia, when I asked him refund he reject, that is why be carefull to buy the rare collections. All rare collections in this blog were guinine ones because I found my slef from an old collectors circa 1973 and in an old archived and myself eksploration at the field circa 1960-1976. In another years I will write and showed you the fake collection to  chompare with guinine ones.Happay New year 2010, maygod bless you and never bought a fafe items, plese show us the rare item you want to buy and I will help you to free identify.
