Forgeries exist of the values 50 r, 75 r, 80 r and 100 r, examples:

I've been told that these four stamps are made by Fournier (by I'm not certain that this is true). The distinguishing characteristics are: the impression is quite rough on the forgeries. At the back a small latin text appears, it is spelt 'nunc' in the originals, but 'nune' in the forgeries.

I've been told that the values 2 1/2 r, 5 r, 10 r, 15 r brown, 20 r and 25 r red exist without value inscription (I have seen the 20 and 25 r). I have also seen a misprint of the 5 r with inverted value overprint. The 2 1/2 r also seems to exist in this condition. Example of an inverted value overprint:


(Inverted value overprint on the 5 r orange)
