This section illustrates some of the differences between genuine stamps and forgeries.
Note: the F5 crowns seem to be on a larger scale than the others.

Eagle's Crown
 
Genuine

Forgery Type 1 (F1)

Forgery 2
Forgery 3
Forgery 4
Forgery 5
#1
#2

Genuine crowns have two fine lines to the border; F3's have none, F4's have one thick line.
F2's & F5's seem to have thick blotches (usually 3 on F2's).
F5 crowns seem to have an internal line not seen on other forgery crowns.
The purple line in the #2 F2 crown is part of a (forged?) cancellation.
