LIST OF DUBAI EMISSIONS AND QUANTITIES PRINTED DURING THE BAROODY CONTRACT

Mr. Stephan sent the following information regarding the quantities of stamps printed and overprinted. He never wavered from these figures, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that they were incorrect. Several years after his death I had a telephone conversation with an individual who had purchased much of Mr. Stephan’s material from Mrs. Stephan. He stated that Mr. Stephan held back some things he had created as he was afraid of legal action. He also stated Mr. Stephan had shown him how he produced such items and other fakes. I have no doubt that this was true, but it also left an opening for the individual as he was continuing in Mr. Stephan’s footsteps and creating fake items and selling them. He stated that the fakes were in Mr. Stephan’s stock. This could not be true as it involved techniques not available to Mr. Stephan at the time the stamps were printed.

Also, 2 and 3np values were locally surcharged 20 and 30np respectively, due to shortage of those denominations and late arrival of the following issue, quantities surcharged were 10,000 each. (Later, Mr. Stephan said this was an error and it should have been 1,000 stamps of each value, not 10,000).

These two sets of stamps were not part of the Baroody Contract but were issued before several of the final sets under their contract. Also, there is no Souvenir Sheet with the “UN 19th Ann.” overprint. Only the revaluation of the sheets.
