I`d say no. Some quick tests to be made: diameter (átmérő) = 19,5 mm.
Total issue of this stamp: 6.016, and 3.691 were sold at post offices.
Waslui / Moldova day/month cancellation - spelling (`Waslui` instead of `Vaslui`) in this case is correct, as postmarks were made in Germany (german spelling). Moldova postmarks were used before 1862. So the cancellation (probably forged) suggests that this is not a 1891 so called `GORJAN` reimpression (the original postmarks were used).
I`ll soon post the design characteristics, but at first look this one doesn`t seem ok.

Sorry, but it is definitely a fake. A first quick test is that several forgeries were made in the wrong color or wrong denomination.

The 27p stamp should be in black ink on rose colored paper. Your fake is clearly not in black ink.
