In my opinion, the 30 c shouldn't have an accent on the "A". The "5" is placed too far to the right in this 5 F forgery, the "P" of "PERCEVOIR" is not aligned with the ornaments below it as in the genuine stamp. The 2 F forgeries have the second "R" of "PERCEVOIR" too close to the scroll besides it. These forgeries are all printed on rough paper and probably made by the same forger.


5 F brown, from the same forger(?), but in a different design ("5" placed in a different spot).
