10 c red, cancelled to order?

Note: The shown cancelled stamp is probably cancelled to order, since I've seen the whole set cancelled with the same cancel 'D'ZAOUDZI MAYOTTE 24 AOUT 05'. I have seen the stamps of Great Comores and Anjouan with the same cancel.

Fournier forgeries, examples:

Note the lack of the fingers of the forgeres (next to the 'E' of 'REPUBLIQUE', the bottom left fruit is attached to the horn and the perforation in the corners is not as in the genuine stamps. Also the perforation is not perfect (especially in the corners). For more information on these Fournier forgeries, click here.

 

From 1903 on the stamps of Madagascar were used.


In 1912 the remainders were surcharged with a '05' or '10':
