40 c orange, cancelled to order?

The shown cancelled stamp is probably cancelled to order, since I've seen the whole set cancelled with the same cancel 'D'ZAOUDZI MAYOTTE 24 AOUT 05'. I have seen the stamps of Mayotte and Great Comores with the same cancel.


(Fournier forgery)

Fournier made forgeries of these stamps, for more information on these forgeries click here..

From 1908 on Anjouan used the stamps of Madagascar.

I have seen a postcard ('CARTE POSTALE') in the same design in the value 10 c black (country name in blue).

The remaining stamps of Anjouan were surcharged with a '05' or '10':

Forgeries of these stamps exist, examples (probably Fournier forgeries), note that the perforation in the corners doesn't 'match', while in the genuine stamps it does:
