United States: Stamps: Confederate (CSA) Facsimiles and Private Proofs  
All items are guaranteed to be as described and may be viewed on approval. Payment plans are available.
Since at least the early 1900s, collectors and dealers have privately created "reprints" and "proofs" and a large number of facsimiles of CSA stamps. The reprints and proofs have sometimes been made with the intent of sharing information on sheet position / cliche differences, etc. The facsimiles were largely created to provide inexpensive images of CSA stamps to a wide range of novice collectors who could never afford to have the real stamps. Several printings were made with differing papers, back printing, etc. and have only recently (ca. 2017) been well documented in the literature. More recently (2000 onward?) facsimiles / reproductions have been made of the facsimiles -- all that I have seen are lightly marked "Facsimile" on the reverse. The collecability of the facsimiles, and even more so their reproductions, is up for debate. However, since they do exist and because unscrupulous sellers might try to defraud novice collectors with them, I believe that it is useful for properly marked items to be available for their educational and reference value as long as they are correctly described and at a nominal price to cover their cost of handling.

Confederate Facsimiles: Group of 12 "mint". Sometimes described as reprints, these are facsimiles made for collectors (I believe that these date from the 1950s), but they are still quite collectible. All have back printing "Facsimile / No. xxx", however this group contains at least five different types / colors of backprinting. The top row has been backprinted ONCE with numbers 202 and 205 in dark gray, 207 in black, 211 in blue gray, and 212 in light gray. The middle row has been backprinted ONCE IN WHITE (I may have previously accidentally offered such items as not having backprints) with numbers 200, 209, and 213. The third row has been backprinted TWICE: 201 and 204 in dark gray and white; 203 and 208 in light gray and white. The white backprinting is extremely hard to see. All are on varying grades of coarse yellowish paper except 213 which is on good quality bright white paper. I do not know for sure, but I suspect that the various backprinting versions of these exist for other numbers as well -- it would make for an interesting study.

Confederate Reproductions of Facsimiles: Group of 12 imperforate "sheets" of 25 "stamps" each. These are modern, crudely made, REPRODUCTIONS of the 1950s facsimiles, obtained on the open market (not from the maker, who is unknown to me). The word "Facsimile" is printed on the back of each "stamp". Total of 300 "stamps". These are offered only for their educational and reference value. Would be a useful addition to a forgery reference collection and also would be useful to educate other collectors, such as stamp club members, of the kinds of things to watch out for.
