Many of the above stamps also exist bisected (forged bisected cancels also exist). An unofficial reprint of the 1 c orange was made (perforated 11 or imperforate).

Many of the above stamps are worth considerably more with cancel than unused. Forged cancels exist.

Forgery:


(Forgery of the 4 1/2 p stamp)

Bogus issues:

Bogus issue (15 c blue!), cancel 'Charlotte-town'. This issue is a bogus issue by an American dealer (according to Album Weeds, he probably refers to Alan Taylor).

15 c blue, bogus issue?

and a bogus value of 10 c.

bogus issue, thanks to David Stirling
(10 and 15 c Taylor bogus issues, reduced sizes)

Taylor made also a forgery of the 4 p stamp (with missing mouth!) and a primitive forgery of the 4 1/2 p. If you posess a picture of these forgeries, please contact me!

A bogus issue for Prince Edward Islands, with Queen Isabella of Spain (!):

Bogus issue, image thanks to David Stirling
(Reduced size)
