I have seen whole sheets of these forgeries, some imperforate, other perforated. Also sheets with forged cancels 'CHARKARI STATE 29 MAR 1912'. See http://www.princelystates.com/CurrentIssue/ff-04-01a.shtml for more information concerning these forgeries. Sometimes they are offered as reprints on Internet auctions.
