1853 Head of Columbus, inscription 'CORREOS PORTE FRANCO', Imperforated

1 c yellow 5  c red 10 c blue 20 c green

  1 c yellow
  5 c red
  10 c blue
  20 c green


(Watermark on the 20 c stamp)

For the specialist, these stamp have a watermark consisting of the value of the stamp (for example '5' for the 5 c) value. The values 5 c and 10 c were issued first with slightly smaller watermark. Later a larger watermark was introduced. Futhermore local prints and London prints can be distinghuished for the 5 c and 10 c.

I've been told that the next stamps are Hahn reprints of the 20 c in wrong colours, they have a 'star' watermark. I have no further information:


(Hahn reprints with star watermark and wrong colours, reduced sizes)


(Hahn reprint)

I have seen a sheet of these forgeries (3 rows of 10) of these Hahn reprints, where parts of the adjacent stamps are also partly printed.

Forgeries, examples:

Forgeries!

The second forgery in the above picture is in the wrong colour! The first stamp can be recognized by its spots in the central circle. It is the first forgery mentioned in Album Weeds. Some other examples of this forgery:

Forgery!

I have also seen the 10 c value of this same forgery.

The above sheet of forgeries also is printed in the wrong colours.

(Spiro forgeries, reduced sizes)


(Spiro forgery, image obtained from forgeries idenfication site of Bill Claghorn)

Spiro has made forgeries of these stamps. The genuine stamps are engraved, the forgeries are lithographed. There is a thick coloured line around the head of Columbus in the forgeries, this line is absent in the genuine stamps. I have seen all values of this particular forgery.

I've also seen a 20 c green stamps chemically changed into a 20 c blue stamp.
