Printed very black, the "1" in the 1 F value is placed too low and the "5" in the 5 F value is also placed too low. The "C" of 'PERCEVOIR" is not broad enough. The "S" of "FRANCS" in the 2 F and 5 F stamps is placed too close to the ornaments on the right of it.


The same set, but for the French Colonies.


Here part of a sheet with all three values printed together.
