Imperato (Italian stamp forger) also made forgeries of these stamps (Genoa forgeries); See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:LHH_-_Faux_%27Imperato_(Faux_de_G%C3%A8nes).jpg for an image. I've been told that there are two types, A and B, I don't know the distinguishing characteristics.
Gênes or Genoa forgeries.
Each of the 5 rows in this 30 l forgery has its own distinguishing characteristics. Row 1 has a scratch above the left "30", Row 2 has a line connecting the upper left corner to the lines below it. Row 3 has some smudges in the lower right ornament. Row 4 has a break in the circle just above the "T" of "LEPT". Row 5 has a tiny dot in the lines to the left of the left "30".
Genoa, Type A forgeries.
Genoa, Type B forgeries.
Genoa forgeries with the forged "PATRAI 28 IOYN 77 (3)" cancel as also shown above.
Possibly Genoa forgeries as well.
