PHILATELIC PROBLEM NINE


British Columbia bogus colour trial essays attributed to Andre Frodel

These bogus colour trial essays of the British Columbia three pence issue of 1865 appeared in Fred Eaton’s auction sales shortly after his trip to San Francisco, where he reportedly visited a Col. Scott. Kraemer reported that five zinc and one brass dies of the three pence were sent to the National Postal Museum. The author is still in the process of examining these “essays” to determine how many different types reached the philatelic market before the dies were turned over to the Vancouver Police by Eaton. The author has not seen any of these back stamped “Forgery / Andre Frodel” with the exception of the 1 Dollar surcharged forgery in green. If you have any of these colour trial essays, please send a 1200 dpi scan to the author.
