The items shown here are “cut outs” according to Spink Auction. In their Spink China auction of May 2017 these five items were listed by Spink as “1884 First issue, set of five, colour die proof in white thick paper, toned spots.” They were sold for HK$20.000 (approx. 2300 EUR or 2550 USD).
However, when these items showed up there was some discussion amongst KSS members. So, what do you think? Real or not? And what would “real” mean in this case?
