Scott 3819 var, 23¢ Washington self-adhesive, 2003 date, fake local precancel, plate number V11

- The population of Wilbur, Oregon is 31 people. There are no businesses and no legitimate need for precancels
- The quality appears to be more typical of a rubber handstamp applied manually to a single stamp, rather than of an overprint-type mat with high quality ink applied in a grid to a block of stamps by a professional printer
- No example is known on cover. The precancellation appears to have been applied some time after any possible contemporary usage
- The stamp was offered along with a number of other identical suspicious local precancels on stamps spanning a quarter century

Scott 3620, (37) Flag, plate number P1111
