The stamps of the re-issue of the 1861 series are rare. When separated from the sheet they were often scissor cut, this only slightly
detracts from the value. These are on hard white paper and perforated, forgers will take proofs of this series and perforate them
to give the stamp a higher value.
A certificate from stamp expertisers such as the PSE, would be required if interested stamps from this rare series.
