This section illustrates some of the differences between genuine stamps and forgeries:

Dots Above the Right Wing
 
#1

#2

Genuine The 2nd row of genuine dots drops down near the frame, creating a white space that can be very noticable at times.
Forgery Type 1 (F1)
Forgery 2
The white streak across the #2 F2 is just some sort of printing freak on this particular stamp.
Forgery 3
Forgery 4
Forgery 5
Note the "sesame street" beak on the Eagle. (Bert of Ernie & Bert had a similar nose.)

Notice that the 2nd row of genuine dots drops down near the frame,
creating a white space that can be very noticable at times.
