Value of the stamps
vc = very common c = common * = not so common ** = uncommon
*** = very uncommon R = rare RR = very rare RRR = extremely rare
|1 f||**||***||Small design|
|1 p||***||***||Two sizes|
Stamps in the same design, but with different colours, are probably bogus issues (or reprints). I've seen the small sized stamp in the colours black, green and red and the large sized stamp in the colours black and green, example:
For stamps of India overprinted Faridkot click here.
The above stamp is a fiscal stamp. I have also seen a green and a yellow stamp (both imperforate) and a blue stamp (perforate and imperforate) in the same design. For forgeries of Faridkot see this website: http://www.princelystates.com/CurrentIssue/ff-04-01c.shtml.
(Forgeries of the 1 f stamp)
The above stamps are forgeries. They look exactly like the picture of the second forgery of this stamp on the above mentioned website. The details of the design are slightly different. There exist at least two forgeries of the 1 f and 1 forgery of the 1 p.
