Nativos da Índia- falso 01
India Natives- forgery 01
F01 (10Reis, black)
F01 (40 reis blue- imperforated "proof")

An early forgery made by someone who had never seen the actual stamps and used the illustration from some album. Notice the lateral stroke-ornaments that never existed in the actual stamps.

Tthere are 27 lines counted across the center.

All values exist perforated. At least the 40 reis blue exists without the value printed, sometimes offered as a proof or reprint (the Natives were never reprinted).

F01 (300 Reis violet)
