Gerhard Lang Valchs
Until the beginning of the 1860’s there are no advertisements of stamps nor in the local, nor the regional or country-wide distributed newspapers. There were about half a dozen stamp dealers established all over Europe, let’s say as part-time-dealers. They were librarians, antiquarians or practised a similar profession and the stamps were an additional occupation and income. So, for stamps there obviously existed only a very limited market, with even less, very few profitable possibilities to place forgeries.
 In April 1865 Dean published a large panegyric poem entitled Timbromania. in his magazine SCMis, n.10, p. 147/48.
 An own analysis focused on Spanish stamps could discover more copied fakes.
