New subject guide: Fakes, Forgeries, and Counterfeits

forgeriesWe’ve just added a new subject guide to literature on fakes, forgeries, and counterfeits to the APRL website. The guide lists some important references on this topic, as well as tips for searching the catalog for more information. We also have guides for Machins and state revenues, and will add more.

This guide was developed in collaboration with the APS Circuit Sales Division, drawing on the knowledge of Bill Dixon and Tom Horn.

We will rely on subject experts as we expand the subject guide collection. Do you know the literature on an aspect of philately? You can help build our next guide!

To contribute, all you need to do is send me a list of what you think are the key resources on a subject. This could include handbooks, catalogs, journals, journal articles, indexes, and websites. We may add resources and library tips and will format the guide. We are happy to give credit to any subject experts who contribute.
