(Typical cancellations resembling a 'fancancel' or 'piece of cake'; 'Fächerstempel' in German)

I have seen postal stationery in the values 3 p green and 10 p red in the same design. I know that at least a 5 p violet, a 20 p blue and a 40 p violet must also exist.

These stamps exist with overprint 'Probe zur Frankatur nicht verwentbar' in fancy letters, they were made for educational purposes. I've also seen stamps of later issues and official stamps with this overprint (sorry, no picture available).

Forgeries: I know that Sperati has made a forgery of the 2 M yellow.

Fournier also made forgeries of some of these stamps. I think the next stamp is an unfinished forgery from one of 'The Fournier Album of Philatelic Forgeries':


(Fournier? forgery of the 2 M yellow and black stamp, reduced size)


(Fournier forgery of the 2 M orange and black value, with 'FAUX' overprint)


(Fournier forgeries of the 5 M value)

 

In 1902 Wurttemberg stopped issuing its own stamps and used the stamps of Germany instead.

Some stamps were issued just after World War II, under the french zone in Wurttemberg.
