Forgeries, examples:

Forgery!

I've been told that this forgery was made by Alfred Baguet, the bottom of the value tablet is double (below the 1). Fournier has also made forgeries of these stamps. More information can be found at: http://www.thehaiticollector.com/Stamp%20Web%20Page/Collectors_Club_Exhibit/5a.%201881%20liberty_head_series.htm


(Possibly a Fournier forgery with 'FAUX' overprint)

Postal forgeries also seem to exist, they are perforated 14 or 16 (genuine perforated stamps are perforated 13-13 1/2). They seem to have been used in 1882 in Cap Haitien. These forgeries are extremely rare in unused condition. I have no further information.
