Jean de Sperati Forgery. A very dangerous forgery in color that is a fair match for the genuine but there is a little more red. The impression is good and there is little sign of loss of white space except in the horizontal lines of shading. The centre stroke of the ‘F’ of ‘FILIPINAS’ is weak or broken, there is a dot in the upright of the ‘P’, three white spots in the ‘N’ and a nick on the right of this letter. There is an indentation on the left of the ‘U’ of ‘UNA’ and there is a white spot in the right leg of the ‘A’. Die Proofs are also known in colour.
