Looks quiet genuine these stamps from Sardinia .Cover 1862:Lecco too Pordenone.Very late usage of these stamps on cover.Mixed franking so worth a certain sum..
For the tint of the 40c, we could say it's the 1862 printing 16E(Sassone cat.) to be on the safe side.
The 5c is perhaps a 13D 1862,the 10c 14D 1862.Color identification is very difficult with the later printings.Thats why I prefer the 1862 date for eventual identification.
Simply for the 14D 1862 printing there are 10 different tints with a wide range in catalog value...

Sure you can send it too Enzo Diena in Italy.They would be able to pin point the 3 tints.

(I noticed that there is a crease running through all the stamps.That will be considered as a serious defect)
