ALFONSO XIII - BABY HEAD stamps of the PHILIPPINES

Forgeries

20c Surcharge Forgeries

Type C3

Genuine Handstamp Type C3
 

Characteristics:

An obvious forgery with many aspects in error, notably “20” is too small,

the lettering “HABILITADO” and “CORREOS” has fine lettering, too short in length and offset from the left and top margins respectively.

The vertical lines of the internal frame appear to be missing as does “PARA”.
