There exist 'misprints' in wrong colours of the non-overprinted stamps: 10 r black, 15 r green, 25 r black and 50 r red; however, these are all forgeries! Furthermore inverted and double overprinted 'REPUBLICA' stamps are forgeries as well.

I have seen a 20 r red with green 'REPUBLICA' overprint with additional horizontal 'ASSISTENCIA' overprint, this is probably a fiscal stamp.
