Leonard Pascanu, A.I.E.P.
President F.F.R.
  • Have you any uncertainties concerning the postage stamps from your collection?
    You can ask the help of Romanian Philatelic Federation experts.


    The experts of the Romanian Philatelic Federation offer authentication, evaluation and quality assessment of postage stamps.

    Please contact us and we will put you in contact with our experts specialized in philatelic issues, periods, postal routes and so on.

      In the hereby image Mr. Leonard Pascanu, international expert, points out a fake.
A letter marked with a stamp "Head of the auroch" 80 parale, the second issue stamp with FRANCO LEOVA and LEOVA-MOLDOVA 14/9. The postal office LEOVA did not exist in 1858, the postal office was set up much later. The first postal marks delivered from the Central Warehouse in Bucharest to LEOVA were those from the issue "Cuza 1865".

The fakes realized with the thimble seal "FIERBINTI" forged.

     The poor philatelic knowledge of the period 1930-1940 has made possible the launch on the collectors' market from Romania and from abroad of a lot of faked letters realized on supports of original letters from official correspondents with original postage stamps stamped with faked seals of nonexistent post offices at that date. As an example we present two such letters lounged as rarity. It can be remarked the combination of some issues which never circulated together: "Carol with side whiskers - 1868 nearby "Carol with beard"-1871 together with stamps cut from the newspaper. Freakish prices and faked seals are completing the inventing imagination of the forgeries.
