HONDURAS

Return To Catalogue - Honduras miscellaneous


1866 Arms of Honduras, small size

  2 R black on red
  2 R black on green

These stamps were overprinted 'medio real', 'un real' and 'dos reales' to be used in Comayagua and Tegucigalpa.


(Genuine overprint)

The blue stamp (see above) is a forgery, the colour is wrong, it misses the two stars and the branches in the design (it is the third forgery described in Album Weeds, I have seen this same forgery in red). There are at least 6 forgeries of these stamps, I don't know if the other stamp is genuine.
