The 'TIMOR' overprint exists on the stamps of the wrong country, the 10 r value of Mozambique (R) and Portuguese India (RR) instead of Macao.

Reprints:

Reprints exist, example:


(Reprint of 1885, reduced size)

I have seen reprints of the 40 r and 100 r values with additional overprint 'PROVA'.

Forgeries:

The forger Fournier made forgeries of these stamps, using forged basic stamps of Macao and applying a forged overprint. For a description of these forgeries, see under the description of the forgeries, see: 'Portuguese Colonies, Crown issue'. Fournier seems to have used the cancel 'CORREIO 12 NOV. 85 DILLY' on many of his forgeries (uncancelled forgeries also exist).

Fournier even seems to have made forgeries of the error Timor stamps printed on Portuguese India stamps:
