Queen Isabella II
Engelhardt Fohl Forgery. Roughly engraved in Taille-Douce with a coarse design. The inscription 'CORREOS 1854 Y 1855' appears at the top of the stamps instead of the bottom. Value reads '2 Rl' instead of '2 Rs Ftes'. The '2' in '2Rl' appears to have been retouched or altered. (Same die as Gooding #1F1, 2F2 and 4F2)
Almost identical die as above. May have been retouched. The sixth pearl from the top left is broken. The alignment of pearls on the right are not exactly the same, with the center pearl appearing like a sideways 'D'; which in the other types is slightly higher and appears slightly slanted. The right side pearls seem to have shifted The '2' in '2Rl' appears retouched but not as exaggerated as Type B.
