4 r stamp is on thick hard paper like stock-card.







6 r stamp is on kind of thin smooth paper






Much appreciated.

Definitely not genuine. There are so many things wrong with 4r, and 6r is simply the wrong shape.

Vayolene thank you for the link, I was looking for these stamps at that site, but I was looking under Switzerland, not Zurich.

4r is on thick paper, was there ever a stationary with this design?

From the back view, the 4r looks to be remounted/rebacked. Note the edges. That's ignoring what supposedly is a remnant of gum on the back.
