Japanese Forgeries:

Forgeries of the classic Japanese stamps are so common that the problem can seem unmanageable. Expertizing all these early stamps may not be a good option because close to 80% of the classic Japanese stamps found in general collections will be forgeries. With so few genuine stamps, the expertizing fees could well exceed the value of the few genuine stamps found in an unsorted group. However many Japanese forgeries are not difficult to determine and do not need an expert opinion.

When these "easy to recognize" forgeries have been weeded out, an expert opinion can be obtained on the remaining stamps from the International Society for Japanese Philately for as little as $1.00 each without certificate.
