Mr. Stephan would never talk about the Dubai Postal Cards and when asked would only state that Mr. Lorenzo was responsible for them. He claimed the same for the aerogrammes.
After Mr. Stephan's death and his stock having been sold, many items began to appear that were alleged to have been part of his stock, but never issued by the country. The items in question were in fact not part of his stock but were created after the year 2000. They appear regularily on the Internet in eBay and Delcampe auctions and in various auction catalogs. They are totally bogus and are recent creations.
The cards below, all bearing the image of the 10Rs stamp of the first definitive set, are fantasy items that had no reason to exist as the postal card rates were all below one rupee. Additionally, the word SPECIMEN printed on it (Twice in the case of the top cards) is not the format used by Mr. Stephan/Mr. Lorenzo. The second SPECIMEN in located on the robe of the Ruler. There is nothing you could use a card with a value of 10Rs for, even at todays' postal rates.
The forger copied the front of the format used for aerogrammes under the Baroody contract and then printed it on card stock. That is why the printing in the upper left corner states Air Letter. The lines of dashes that cannot be seen in these small scans were the folding lines on the aerogrammes. There is nothing to fold on these cards.
These cards are approximately 152 x 103mm in size. They are larger than any of the cards officially issued under the name of Dubai.
The actual date of issue of the first set of three cards with three of the images used on the Boy Scout stamps was ???. Evidently they sold well as they later issued two additional cards with two of the same designs, but on different card stock and slightly smaller in size.
The first set has each stamp image printed on a different colored card stock. The reason for this could have been to help determine the various destinations when sorting the out-going mail, as they had different rates. While that is a nice theory, the reality of the situation is that in all my years of collecting, I have only seen one postally used card from Dubai.
As a result of the success of the first Scout postal cards, the 10np and the 15np cards were reissued on different colored card stock and in a slightly larger size. The high value 25np card was not reissued. These two cards are plentiful and easy to find on the philatelic market, but that is not the case with the first issue. They are illusive and expensive, especially the first day covers.
No postal card was issued by Dubai for the Athens Olympics and none was planned. These were simply cards upon which they printed the second Olympic overprint, with both the red and black shields. Many varieties exist for both colors.
The three cards below are all fraudulent and the forger copied the front of an aerogramme and then printed it in a different color on the card stock. The line of dashes around the card are the fold lines for the aerogramme.
