Forgeries:

Fournier has made forgeries of this 'Tablet' issue, for more information on these forgeries click here. The horizontal and vertical perforations are not matching in the corners in these forgeries.


A sheet with Fournier forged cancels, on the third row, last cancel one finds "FOMBONI 4 NOV 09 MOHELI" (here badly visible). This cancel was used on the Fournier forgeries.


"FOMBONI 4 NOV 09 MOHELI" applied to forgeries.


Unfinished forgery from a Fournier album.


Another modern forgery, also with the perforation not matching in the corners as in the Fournier forgeries, also 'MOHELI' is written with different lettertypes, see for example the 'M', which has a very high central part

 

From 1903 on the stamps of Madagascar were used.
