Fun with Phonies

Welcome, Agent X. Thank you for coming to the International Philatelic Exhibition on such short notice.

Here's your mission: One of these exhibits is showcasing a forged 3 pence stamp from Newfoundland. Only a limited number of the real 3 pence stamps was ever issued, so it is very valuable. You must find the forged stamp as soon as possible and report it.

Your "toolkit" includes a genuine 3 pence stamp, a zoom tool and a 2-way radio to contact us when you think you have found the bogus stamp.

Go from exhibit to exhibit to see what stamps are showcased. If a 3 pence stamp is there, click on it to magnify and it will be displayed beside the genuine stamp for comparison.

On certain exhibits are "Top secret" hints. If you click on them, you'll get a hint to help you identify the forged stamp.

Good luck!


pence: the plural of the British penny
