Forgeries:

Forged cancels exist (especially on envelopes), for more details see: http://www.arge-ungarn.de/forgeries.htm (in German).

Fournier made forgeries of the lithographed stamps by using the envelopes of this country and applying a forged perforation to them (3 kr and 10 kr). He offers them for 5 Swiss Francs (both values) as first choice forgeries in his 1914 pricelist.


(Example of a Fournier forgery made from a genuine envelope, reduced size, with 'FAUX' overprint)

Other forgeries made in Turin (Italy) exist (of all values). Some of them seem to be rarer than the genuine stamp. If anybody has more information, please contact me!

I've been told that the next stamp is a Sperati forgery:


(Sperati forgery of a 3 k stamp)


Front and backside of a 15 k Sperati forgery, image obtained from http://www.arge-ungarn.de/forgeries.htm

Sperati used genuine stamps, removed the image (while keeping the cancel) and then printed a new value on them. In this way, the paper, perforation and cancel are all genuine! I don't know the distinghuishing characteristics of this Sperati forgery. If anybody has more information, please contact me.
