Uruguay 1858 and 1860 'Sun' issues

 

1864 Arms

Genuine, obtained from the forgery site of Bill Claghorn

  06 c red
  08 c green
  10 c yellow
  12 c blue

Surcharged (1866)

5 c on 12 c blue

  5 c on 12 c blue
  10 c on 08 c green
  15 c on 10 c yellow
  20 c on 06 c red

For the specialist: these stamps were issued after a currency reform. Tete-beche stamps (stamps attached upside down) exist of the 8 c value. The 12 c exists bisected. The surcharges became necessary after a change in postal rates. Errors of this surcharge exist (as well as forged and bogus surcharges).

Value of the stamps

vc = very common
c  = common
*  = not so common
** = uncommon
*** = very uncommon
R   = rare
RR  = very rare

10 c on 08 cRRRRR 
15 c on 10 c RRRRR 
20 c on 06 cRRRRR 

Forgeries of these stamps exist (inclusive the overprints). The genuine stamps should have an accent over the second 'E' of 'CENTESIMOS' (there are at least five forgeries without this accent according to Album Weeds). The letters 'RI' of 'ORIENTAL' are joined at the bottom in the genuine stamps.

Could be a forgery
(Forgery, no accent on 'E', 'R' and 'I' not joined at the bottom)


(Note the strange cancel on these forgeries! It resembles the 'Spider' cancel of Spain)


('R' and 'I' of 'ORIENTAL' are not joined in these forgeries)


(Another forgery with the 'R' and 'I' of 'ORIENTAL' not joined)

(What is this? 10 c yellow?)
