Similar forgeries of the values 5 c, 10 c and 50 c can be found on Bill Claghorn's forgery site: http://members.tripod.com/claghorn1p/Ecuador/Ecu65.htm. These forgeries are all printed very badly (compared to the genuine stamps).

Official stamps

From 1886 onwards many postage stamps were overprinted with 'OFICIAL' or 'FRANQUEO OFICIAL'. Be careful, forgeries of these overprints exist, example:


(Forged overprint)


Telegraph stamps

Examples

The following overprinted stamp 'TELEGRAFOS' was only used for postal services and not for telegraphic purposes:


(Reduced size)

Other stamps of 1892 with overpritn 'TELEGRAFOS' were actually used as telegraph stamps, the values 1 c, 2 c, 5 c, 10 c, 20 c, 50 c, 1 S and 5 S exist with this overprint.

Three stamps (10 c, 20 c and 40 c) in the design of the 1894 stamps, but with inscription 'TELGRAFOS DEL ECUADOR' were issued in 1894.

Other design:


(1893 issue, these three values only)

Inscription 'TELEGRAFOS EQUADOR'

10 c grey and black 20 c red and black 40 c lilac and black
(1900 issues, reduced sizes, these three values were issued only)

Besides these stamps, there are also some fiscal stamps with overprint 'TELEGRAFOS'.


Fournier forgeries

Fournier (a forger) has made forgeries of Ecuador. After he died an album with forgeries was made to enable stamp collectors to distinguish his forgeries. He used cancels that always resembled the cancels used by the country he forged. Here a copy of a page of this album with the cancels for Equador:

1) 'ADN???? DE CORREOS DE GUAYAQUIL ECUADOR GUAYAQUIL U.P.U. MAR 12 189.'

2) 'FRANCA' (I have seen this cancel being used on forgeries of Buenos Aires, so I think it has been misplaced in the Founier Album).

3) 'QUITO 18 MARZO 81 FRANCA'

4) 9 lines arranged to form a circle


Fiscal stamps
