Whoever forges, or counterfeits, or knowingly utters or uses any forged or counterfeit postage stamp or revenue stamp of any foreign government, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., § 349 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch. 321, § 220,35 Stat. 1132; May 26, 1926, ch. 396, 44 Stat. 653).
A paragraph defining “foreign government” was combined with other like provisions to form section
11 of this title. A proviso against repeal, “Provided, however, That nothing in this section shall be held to repeal or modify section
350 of this title [now section
504 of this title]”, was deleted as unnecessary since that section by express reference to this one makes it clear that these sections are in pari materia.
Minor changes in phraseology were also made.
1994—Pub. L. 103–322substituted “fined under this title” for “fined not more than $500”.
