Forgeries of these stamps were made by Fournier:


(Fournier forgeries?)

 

1895 Head of Columbus, inscription 'MULTADA'

  1 c red on yellow
  2 c red on yellow
  4 c red on yellow
  8 c red on yellow
  10 c red on yellow
  20 c red on yellow
  40 c red on yellow
  50 c red on yellow
  60 c red on yellow
  80 c red on yellow
  1 P red on yellow
  100 c red on yellow

For the specialist: these stamps have been issued with perforation 11 1/2 in 1895 (1 c to 1 P) and re-issued with perforation 13 1/2 in 1896 (1 c to 100 c), thus the 1 P only exists with perforation 11 1/2 and the 100 c only with perforation 13 1/2. The colours of the 1896 issue are slightly different (the colour of the paper as well).

I've been told that the following stamps are Fournier forgeries, I don't have any further information on them.

Fournier forgery


(Fournier forgeries, reduced sizes)

I have seen them with the following cancels only: 'MULTADA' in a rectangular box, and the following circular postmarks: 'SANTIAGO CHILE 31 1 95', 'SANTIAGO CHILE 31 I 95', 'LINARES CHILE 30 NOV 95', 'VALDIVIA 1 FEB 97 CHILE', 'PISABUA 1 DIC 97 CHILE' and 'TALCA CHILE 5 ABR 95'. Other Fournier cancels exist (see pictures below), however, I do not know if they were used on the above forgeries.


(Fournier cancels, reduced sizes)

Fournier offers two series of these stamps, as second choice forgeries in his 1914 pricelist. The first serie is the values 20 c to 1 P with perforation 11 1/2 (6 values); he offers them for 1 Swiss Franc in his pricelist. The second serie (also second choice forgeries), the values 20 c to 100 c (6 values) with perforation 13 1/2.

From 1899 to 1924 postage due stamps were no longer issued. In 1924 they were re-introduced. A new serie was issued (illegally?) in 1924 with inscription 'CORREOS CHILE MULTA' with a number in the center (8 values).


Official stamps

In 1907 official stamps for the navy-ministry were issued. They bear the inscription 'CORRESPONDENCIA OFICIAL CHILE MINISTERIO DE MARINA'. Several overprints also exist.


(I've been told that this is a forgery of such a stamp)

In 1908 several postage stamps were overprinted with an anchor and inscription 'OFICIAL'. These overprints are merely security overprints of the army-ministry.


(1 P with red 'OFICIAL' and anchor overprint, could be a forgery)

From 1886 onwards returned letter stamps were issued, they have the inscription 'CIERRO OFICIAL', example of 1895:

Many other designs exist.

Image obtained from Christer Bergstrom Telegraph stamp

  2 c brown
  10 c olive
  20 c blue
  1 P brown
  5 P red
  10 p green

The values 2 c, 10 c, 20 c and 1 P seem to have been used postally in 1891.

 

1894 As before, but smaller size

(Sorry, no picture available yet)

  2 c brown
  5 c red
  10 c green
  20 c blue

There are two types of the 2 c, 5 c and 10 c; the horse has a tail in the first type and in the second type it doesn't.

(Reduced size)

  1 c red

It seems that in 1880-81, 1891 and 1913 these fiscal stamps were used for postal purposes.
