REF # 1896Sur1c

A very obvious forged overprint of the very rare inverted 'P' of PENNY.

 

 

 

 

 

REF # 1896Sur1d

A crude forgery.  The font style is all wrong.  Note how the 'y' is higher than the rest of the letters.  Almost certainly the same person who made REF # 1896Sur1c above.

 

 

 

 

REF # 1896Sur1e

Both the overprint and the cancel loos dubious.  An expertising certificate is highly recommended.
