1864 Juarez Issue
« Reply #1 on: June 30, 2019, 10:26:45 AM »
The original printings of the 1864 Juarez issue differ from the reprints in shade and thickness of the paper.  The reprints are extremely common, the original stamps quite rare and expensive.  The reprints have been used to create fake used stamps.

My question is do unused stamps with no overprints exist from the original printing?  I've always assumed that an unused stamp with no overprint is a reprint, but would like to verify that this is correct and that unused un-overprinted original printing stamps are not known.  Thanks.
