Jean de Sperati was one of the most noted and proficient stamp forgers in the world. His stamps were often authenticated as genuine by experts. He was a printer by profession and could skillfully mimic with detailed accuracy the design and motifs as well as the paper of the real thing. He was nicknamed "The Rubens of Philately." Forgeries by Sperati often command prices equal to the genuine stamps.
