STAMP DUTY

1897 Various designs

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.

(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:
