There are couple of sellers that operate from Armenia. Some of them had a lot of genuine material, some had mixed genuine and forged. Lately I encounter more frequently a certain kind of forged cancellations within their stocks (see a few posts below for an example). Here are two covers with bear the same kind of fake-cancels. Probably all made by the same person and, since they first appear within the stock of Armenian sellers, produced in Armenia. The theme is always to use genuine more or less common or ugly material and pimp it up with fake cancels. The cancels are crudely drawn, the circles not equally round, digits and characters unclean and distorted. Beware!
