Fournier made forgeries of these stamps. He offers 9 values (from 10 to 1000 reis) as first choice forgeres for 4 Swiss francs in his 1914 Pricelist. I presume these are only the red coloured stamps. He also offers 8 values (the coloured stamps?) for 3 Swiss Francs in the same pricelist. He probably used the following cancels ('O DO RIO GRANDE DO SUL 29 OUT 1908' and 'ADM. DO SC DO PARAMA EXP. 10 JUL 92'):

In the above and similar designs exist: 20 r brown (with two different border designs), 50 r blue, 80 r orange,


Other example:

Envelopes in this design exist in the values 100 r red, 200 r lilac, 300 r blue and 500 r blue (issued 1892). In 1893 some wrappers in the same design were issued in the values 20 r green, 40 r yellow and 60 r brown.

Non issued stamps, ACRE


(Reduced size)

According to 'Les timbres de phantasie' of Georges Chapier (in French), these stamps were prepared for a country named Acre, nowadays in Brazil near Bolivia. This republic became independant for a very short time, but was never able to use these already prepared stamps. The following values seem to exist: 200 r, 300 r, 500 r and 800 r in the design with a tree, house and star and 2000 r and 5000 r in the design of a flag.
