The 1¢ Franklin flat plate horizontal coils are often faked. Particularly suspect are well-centered
stamps. Although many fakes are made by trimming a fully perforated or a large margined straight edge copy of the 1¢ Franklin
sheet stamps, most of these fakes are easily recognized since they often measure less than the proper height of at least 25 mm, and the
look and feel of the straight edge is just not right.
