Reprints:

I've been told that the above stamp is a reprint made from retouched original plates. I have no further information. Reprints exist of all values and are not very rare.

Forgeries:


(Primitive forgery with the side ornaments different; not enough loops)


(Forgeries with a very large 'flag' on the ship)

Spiro(?) forgeries:

I think the above forgeries are made by Spiro. I've only seen them with a cancel consisting of dots. Fournier also offers these stamps in his 1914 pricelist (3 values together for 1 Swiss Franc as second choice forgeries). Fournier also offered first choice forgeries of these stamps by the way.

Other forgeries:

Rivadeneira forgery! Rivadeneira forgery! Rivadeneira forgery!

The above stamps are Rivadeneira forgeries, I have no further information about these stamps.


(These forgeries are probably originating from the same source, note that he 1/2 r has the same 'defects' as in the above Rivadeneira forgeries)

Bogus stamp! bogus stamp!

The above stamps are bogus stamps. There were never any stamps issued in 2 (dos) reales or 8 (ocho) reales.

(Forgery)

I have my doubts about the next stamps, forgeries?:

I think this is a forgery too

I think the above forgeries are made by Spiro. They are also offered by Fournier in his 1914 pricelist they are offered 1 Swiss Franc (all values except the 4 r, as second choice forgeries). Fournier also offered first choice forgeries of these stamps by the way.
