Postal Stationery

I have seen postcards in the value 10 c red (country name in blue), the inscription reads 'CARTE POSTALE'. I have also seen an envelope of 15 c grey (country name in red) and 25 c blue (country name in red). I've also seen a 'CARTE LETTRE' (15 c grey, country name in red).

Forgeries:


(Fournier forgery)

Fournier has made forgeries of these stamps, for more information on these forgeries click here.

The stamps 15 c blue, 25 c black and 40 c have been overprinted 'TAHITI 10 centimes' for use in Tahiti.
