('UN PESETO')

A Senf forgery of the 1/2 peso, with green 'FALSCH' (=forged in German) overprint:


(Senf forgery)

The above Senf forgery is described in Album Weeds (as the second forgery of the 1/2 p).

A Sperati forgery of the 1/2 peso stamp:

The above stamp is a Sperati forgery of the 1/2 peso orange-yellow stamp. It appeared in 1952. Sperati's forgeries are dangerous and quite rare. On this particular forgery he has applied a fake CHACH cancel, (he seems to have made seven different cancels for this issue). This stamp comes from a handbook made by the British Philatelic Association (see the backside).

Forgeries, example:

I've been told that the above forgeries are made by Spiro, note the strange cancel (an ellipse with 6 horizontal lines). For the specialist: these stamps are lithographed instead of engraved. They are described in 'The Spud Papers XLIII' in greater detail.
