Welcome to Rainer's
Iraq Railway Stamps Pages



Even a little collected area as the Railway stamps of Iraq is not free from forgeries, however, very few forgeries and faked items were noted till now.


So far I am aware of following fake items:


NEW: Today (18 October 2015)  noted 3 "reprints" of Railway stamps of the 5th issue. The stamps are described as reprints on thicker paper. Since there are no official reprints these stamps must be considered as forgeries.

Out of the scans it seems the "stamps" are just copies wit the roulette perforation printed on the paper.
I have asked the seller for explanations and will post the answer here.
