Stamps of Portugal overprinted 'ACORES', (in small or large size)

Note: I have seen the stamps of 1868, 1871 and 1880 with overprint 'ACORES' (small and large overprint, all uncancelled), but with an additional small horizontal line, covering the value at the top. I do not know if these are essays or forgeries.

Be careful! Forgeries of the 'ACORES' overprint exist. For a detailed description see 'Focus on forgeries'.

I have seen the 2 c red stamp with slanting overprint 'ASSISTENCIA', this is probably a fiscal stamp.
