Purchased part of a larger collection. France C3 and C4 are overprinted so are easy marks for counterfeiters... What do you people think?
Are they the real thing or overprinted counterfeits?
Thanks in advance.

Again, a poorly done fake. As with C1-C2, these overprints should all be fairly clean and crisp.

Both these catalogue for $1000+ so are ripe for faking.
They both look to have been printed over the cancel so I would say fake.
A certificate would be a necessity with both of these.

But I learned a lot. Thanks...
