Forged numerals

Several different forged barred numerals and rays exist on Queensland stamps. They are usually - but not always - found on high value chalons and on revenue stamps authorised for postal use where the original fiscal cancellations were removed and replaced with forged postal cancellations to either increase the value of the stamp for resale to collectors or to fraudulently send mail. 

This is a list of the known forged cancellations. Click on the number for information on the forgeries as well as examples.
