The older philatelic magazines are interesting to browse through. One at hand, The Stamp Journal, 1877, described on its masthead as, "Fearless and Independent," regularly carried a box, headed, "The Cemetery," in which they named counterfeiters currently in operation. S. Allan Taylor, 11 Ann St., New York, headed the list. Taylor was also the subject of a special write-up who got all he could out of a swindle, then exposed it, boasting of his honesty.
