About Persia Stamp

Ever since the fall of the Shah of Iran in 1979, Persia has been a closed country to most of the Western world. However, one way to gain insight into this mysterious and greatly important Middle Eastern nation is to look at the history of Persia stamps. Indeed, although the Islamic government keeps a tight lid on communiques, decisions regarding what to put on national stamps reflect changing attitudes within the Republic.Some of the stamps issued by the Ayatollahs reflect political propaganda. At the same time, celebrated figures from Persian history proliferate as well. Interestingly, some observers believe that the messages promoted by the government through its stamps have been intended to influence international opinion as well as to cajole Persia's citizenry to accept the government's positions on certain political and philosophical matters.Bearing all this in mind, Persian stamp collectors should be aware of potential fake Persian stamps. There's a popular book, called Lions of Iran, which goes into great detail about forgeries and fake stamps. Supposedly issued between 1876 and 1880 are stamps portraying the iconic figure of Nasser-eddin Shah. These are actually forgeries. In addition, the lithograph versions of the stamps released between 1881 and 1882 are also fakes.Other forgeries include the 1902 Meched provisional and the Tehran typeset stamps. In addition, watch out for certain faked zinc plates, such as those supposedly released in 1924 and 1925. It is recommended that you research Lions of Iran carefully before you purchase any Persia stamp. If a Persia stamp seems to be in too excellent a condition, chances are that it may be a forgery.
