Canada Booklets

FORGERIES. Fascinating group of 5 COUNTERFEIT booklets produced with the intention of defrauding Canada Post, many reportedly created in the Baltic states of Eastern Europe by former intelligence service agents. Lot consists of 4 booklets of 10 with detailed retail tags highlighting important characteristics and a booklet of 6 with a copy of an extensive article published in 2006. The printing quality varies from obviously coarse to excellent fakes, close enough to the real thing to fool all but the most wary. Retail value
