A misprint of the 40 r Mozambique stamp together with a stamp of Cape Verde exists:

(Misprint: Cabo Verde and Mocambique together, Image reproduced with permission from: http://www.sandafayre.com )

Reprints:

Reprints exist of all the above stamps (made in 1885 an 1905).

Cancels:


(I've often seen the above cancel consisting of 4 parallel black bars)

(Circular town and date cancel)

Forgeries:

Fournier forgeries:

Fournier made forgeries of these stamps. He offers them in his 1914 pricelist: the stamps of the 1877 issue (9 values) are offered for 2 Swiss Francs and the others (5 values) for 1 Swiss Franc. The misprint is also offered by him (click here for more information).

Fournier forgery!


50 r green Fournier forgery with 'CORREIO DE BEIRA 6 10 1878 (MOCAMBIQUE)' cancel

How to identify a Fournier forgery? The central circle with the name 'MOCAMBIQUE' is a little bigger than in the genuine stamps. At the top it touches the line above it quite much. In the genuine stamps it touches it very lightly or not at all. The upper right ornament (besides the 'Q' of 'MOCAMBIQUE') is not symmetric as the other ornaments. I have also noticed that the left upper ornament (outside the circle, besides the 'O' of 'MOCAMBIQUE'), is very close to the frame compared to a genuine stamp. For pictures of this click here. As a final test for the Mozambique stamps it can be noticed that in the genuine stamps, there is a ',' below the 'C' of 'MOCAMBIQUE', in the Fournier forgeries I can not detect any comma.
The cancels used by Fournier were 'CORREIO DE BEIRA 6 10 1878 (MOCAMBIQUE)' and 'CORREIO DE MOCAMBIQUE 1 9 1885'. The dates are always the same, I presume.

 

Other forgery:

Forgery!

I don't know much about the above forgery, except that it is a forgery. Personally I think this could be a reprint.

Forgeries exist of these stamps (see pictures above, I have seen the values 20 r, 50 r, 200 r and 500 r, but probably all values were forged). The easiest way to recognize these forgeries is to compare the ornament above the last 'R' of 'RECEBER'; in the forgery it is not nicely done.
