31st January 2020
MOLDOVA BULL HEAD OR BETTER HEAD OF AUROCHS.HAND MADE.
ADOLF SERIES, MADE BY FOURNIER ? Or actually everyone was dupe and actualy this is an ORIGINAL and all " GENUINE" sold in Auctions around the world are FAKE made by the specialists during the communist regime during 50 years.Ceausescu must know about the values. He sold from long time or hiden in some banks safes.
First is not a BULL HEAD but a AUROCHS for the first very first hand made in 1858. BULL HEAD was used on the second issue.
NOBODY is talking about.
They did with most of the ROMANIAN TRESORS. Why not with this?
Here is a small paragraph from Wikipedia:
Starting on July 1, 1858, letters without stamps were placed in mailboxes placed in public squares and at the postal headquarters in Iaşi, while in other towns such letters were handed over at the post office. Payment would then be made by the recipient. Although the rates went into effect on July 1, it seems the stamps were not placed into circulation until July 15. Their printing was approved May 26, and four steel dies costing 389 lei had been produced by July 1, the engraver unknown. The stamp sheets were printed one by one with the aid of a manual press; in all, 24,064 stamps were printed. Unlike many stamps of the period, which featured the ruling head of state, Moldavia's had the ancient coat of arms with the head of an aurochs. There is a five-pointed star between the horns. The aurochs' lower lip rests on a post horn, within the inner tube of which is the stamp's value in Arabic numerals. The horn and head are enclosed in a circle. Around this circle, in the interior above the head, are the Romanian Cyrillic letters ПОРТО СКРИСОРИ (PORTO SCRISORI; "letters to be paid for by the recipient"). The use of the word PORTO is a mistake; FRANCO denotes letters where the postage has been paid by the sender, as was the case for letters using these stamps.
I think the key is not in the design , but more on the tests of the paper.Laid paper was not known in Moldova at the time this stamp printed by hand was made. Here is a key phrase in the same Wikipedia ; According to another variant, the project was undertaken in haste, and leaves of paper were bought from an Iaşi bookstore.) Secondly the paper: plastic fibers present? then is a fake.The tests are very costly and only museums can do.Nobody who is selling or sold at huge prices this stamp took time to analyze the paper and the composition.
Also all stamps were cut with scissors. Reason of different dimensions.
Maby we should change the way we decide wich is genuine and which is not.Based on SELLERS? NO.Based on a copy and from which we establish a patern? NO. This what the fakers did in the museums during COMMUNISTS in all EAST EUROPE.
When a circle is perfectly done and is claiming DONE BY HAND specially for the very first edition. IS A FAKE.
NO OTHER COPY EXISTING FOR SALE OR AUCTION.
To me personally this is a cut from an envelope sent to France.Which mean with deep research on the paper probably we will see that, this is a GENUINE .
and FORNIER reproduced after. This is what Ican say,that is a 100% HAND WORK 19 century on waived paper.From first IASI printing this, I do not know or guarantee.
Ps. Price in canadians dollars
