Cancels:


(Negative 'H' cancel)

Forgeries:

Forgeries exist of these stamps, examples:


(Forgery left and genuine stamp right)


Probably Spiro forgeries


(Forgery of the 6 c stamp made by Spiro?)

Most of these forgeries are quite primitive (for more examples see: http://www.hawaiianstamps.com/bankfor.html ). I have seen various Spiro forgeries (1 c violet, 2 c red, 5 c blue, 6 c green, 12 c lilac and 18 c brown) There are also some primitive forgeries of other forgers of the 5 c blue and 6 c green values.

A very dangerous forgery of the 50 c was made by Sperati. He used genuine stamps of a lower value, bleached the design and printed his own image on top. In this way, the paper and the cancel are genuine (for more details see the above mentioned website).

There exist forgeries of this overprint, the genuine overprints have a damaged first 'i' in the word 'Provisional': it has no right bottom serif as the other 'i' in this word:



(I think this is a genuine overprint)
