Sheetlet of 12 genuine stamps, cut into half.

  1 p green
  1/4 a green

Value of the stamps

vc = very common

Value Unused Used Remarks
1 p *** ***  
1/4 a * **  

These stamps were printed in sheets consisting of 12 stamps (12 in one row).

With cancels.

The next stamp could be a forgery:


Probably forgeries, too nicely printed to be genuine.

Two forgeries in pale green. In my opinion, the second and third Indian character a tthe bottom should not be connected.

Most likely modern forgeries, produced in the 1980's. The designs appear to have been copied from Stanley Gibbons catalogue. In my opinion, in the 1/4 a, the top Indian character on the left hand side is disconnected from the rest and is too short.

The forger Senf apparently also made a forgery of the above stamp, I have no image available now.

There exist some bogus stamps of Jhind (click here for more details), fiscal stamps in the same design also exist (the use of the above postage stamps was stopped in 1885). For stamps of India with overprint "JHIND STATE" or "JEEND STATE", click here.
