Many Portuguese colonies issued stamps in the Embossed design similar to those of Portugal. The following colonies issued these stamps: Angola, Azores (overprints on Portugal), Cape Verde, Macao, Madeira (overprints on Portugal), Mozambique, Mozambique Company (overprints on Mozambique), Portuguese Guinea (overprinted on Cape Verde), Portuguese India (different currency), St Thomas and Prince and Timor (overprinted on Macao).

Some of these stamps exist with 'REPUBLICA' overprint, for most colonies two types exist; general 'REPUBLICA' overprint for all colonies and local 'REPUBLICA' overprint (different for each colony). Examples:


(Left, with small local; and right with broad 'REPUBLICA' overprint)

Bogus overprint:


(A non existing Inhambane overprint on a Mozambique stamp)

Forgeries

I've seen forged 'Acores' and 'Madeira' overprints on genuine stamps of Portugal.
