For more than one hundred and twenty years the so-called Michelsen “re-prints” have
been the subject of many discussions in world philatelic circles. Since Gustavo
Michelsen began selling them in 1890-91, the legality of these issues has not been clearly
and objectively established. Michelsen tried to make his creations look, to the philatelic
world, as "authorized reprints. It is difficult to differentiate them from the genuine. This
talk will demonstrate that Michelsen's so called "reprints" are fakes and presents reliable
parameters to identify the different printings of the genuine $5 and $10 Pesos stamps
from the counterfeits.
