Some of these stamps were occasionally used as postage stamps. Many of them were sold to stamp collectors after their usage stopped with postal cancels (cancelled to order in 1900-01). This issue is quite confusing, I'm not sure if I have catalogued it correctly.

These stamps have been reprinted, they bear the overprint 'Reprint':
(Stamp with overprint 'Reprint')
Even forgeries exist: Example, a Senf forgery, (the perforation is printed in red):
Senf forgery, the hair covers the ear in this forgery, compare with genuine stamps above. In 'Le Timbre Poste' by Moens No 275, page 99, an image of this forgery is actually given instead of the genuine stamp. It could also be that Senf modelled his forgery after the image given in Moens.
Forgery, made in Greece.
Some stamps could be used for postage and fiscal purposes, example:
(Stamp with inscription "STAMP DUTY" fiscally used)
The 2 Sh 6 p is probably cancelled to order in so-called collector sets; see http://stampsofvictoria.com/ctostamps.php
1 p brown 2 Sh 6 p brown (1885) 2 Sh 6 p yellow (1885)
5 Pounds red and blue 6 Pounds blue and yellow 7 Pounds black and lilac 8 Pounds orange and blue 9 Pounds red and green (More values might exist)
Remark: most of these stamps are cancelled to order when found with a postal cancel.
Many values exist, also two different sizes of these stamp.
