Forensic Technology for the examination of postage stamps, letters, and items of philatelic interest
VSC document analysis instruments, designed for the forensic examination of security and travel documents, are ideally suited to the study of postage stamps and associated postal history items.
Using high magnification, multi-spectral imaging and other techniques, a philatelist may detect the fraudulent manipulation of material produced to deceive the unwary as well as flaws and irregularities produced by the printing process, revealing e.g. differences in ink formulations, perforations, embossing and overprints.
“Equipped with VSC instruments, philatelists are able to access ever more advanced forensic analysis tools to reveal more hidden detail than ever before.”
