1850-51, 12 cents black on blue, a dangerous forgery Townsend no. 9, with forged “EDW” initials and Demerara (22 August 1851) datestamp.
Note: It is interesting to highlight the well execution of this forgery, which was good enough to mislead the famous German expert Heinrich Köhler, who signed this example as genuine.
