I've seen imperforate stamps of the 1 c, 15 c, 20 c, 50 c brown, 60 c black and the 5 F stamps.


A block of 4 imperforate 5 F stamps.


I've seen many stamps with this kind of cancel. I presume these are either cancelled to order (oblitération de complaisance) or precancelled?


Forged 10 c brown. Presumably made from some photograph (when zoomed in the 'dots' can clearly be seen).
