Prepared stamps, but not issued, overprint 'PROVISORIO' and value in circle:


(Probably a bogus issue, 3 different overprints: 'LIMA CORREOS' in a red circle, triangle and horseshoe overprints in black)

The overprint have been forged, among the forgeries, those of Fournier:


(Forged overprints taken from a Fournier Album)

Forgeries, example:

2 c violet, forgery!

I've been told that the above forgery is made by Spiro, as far as I know, it is always cancelled with the above 4 rings cancel. It is always printed too heavily (the design is correct in almost every detail). This forgery is described in Album Weeds.

I have also seen Spiro forgeries of the values 5 c blue, 10 c green and 20 c red (sorry, no picture available yet).
