Lou wrote: I found this one by accident on Bid Start, and I am positive it is spurious, but it has such a ridiculous error I had to share it. I have found in locating scans of sos on recent issues, and especially those for the 175th anniversary of the Penny Black, that the "designer" is using the internet as his source and not actual stamps as in the past.

For this issue, not only did he take the lazy way out, he didn't do very careful research. Instead of finding a scan of a Penny Black, her chose one of the unissued Penny Black official stamp--which other designers have done also--BUT, he then used a scan of the wrong Rowland Hill!  

If you Google "Sir Rowland Hill picture" or even just Rowland Hill, you will get dozens of likenesses of him drawn over his life time--and those of other unrelated Sir Rowland Hills thru English history. I would think that anyone involved in any phase of philately would know what he looked like, but with all the correct images, he chose one of another Rowland Hill, who wasn't even a relative OR knighted. I went thru the scans and found the one used. If you click on it,  you are taken to a site about hymns  that says the pictured Rowland Hill was a Church of England minister and hymn compiler who died in 1833, so he couldn't be the Rowland Hill that fathered the Penny Black in 1840. 

 

Most of the time, and if they are cheap enough, I add these spurious/illegal  stamps to my collection as a kind of Cinderella, but this one is so poorly researched, it's a insult to the legitimate stamps.

Caveat emptor!
