(Reduced size)

  5 s red
  10 s blue

All these stamps (except the 10 s and 15 s) are worth considerably more in cancelled condition than uncancelled. Forged cancels exist!

I've seen stamps with forged cancels (cancelled stamps are often more valuable for this issue). For example a 2 Sld yellow stamp, with a forged 'SALO' cancel (probably part of 'SALONICI').
