Fake 70s samples, 2 sets on eBay

Thanks to Jaffar, a new friend to the site, he has alerted me to the fact that there are two new style fake sample sets on eBay. The sets are shown below. The stamps show a darker area to the normal stamps and that is supposed to be indication that they are sample stamps before the actual stamps were printed.

This method of creating fakes uses the same idea of scratching a part of the background of a stamp to make it look like an error.  There is absolutely no proof these are sample stamps from the printers and Iraqi stamps experts have dismissed them as fakes so Be Aware!.
