Opinion:
All look genuine to me, no blatant forgeries (Spiro etc) that I can see.
Keep on piece if you can.

Yousr are not Railway cancels,just normal postage types.
In the railway cancels of this period (oval bar types) the horizontal bars do not touch the oval frame.
Inside is the (large) letters of the station.

Expensive in only the eyes of the vendor.
Attempting to suck in the unwary.
If this is the best Spiro could do, then I'd suggest he go get a real job.
Rubbish, but I guess we should thank him, they are so bad, they don't really create problems for collectors.

There's a caveat there Manosp,
I am unable to definitely accredit those to Spiro, not an expert there,
seems to be similar (esp. the Pmk) to the ones I receive in lots.

They could well be a knock-off of a genuine forgery.

Also the train Pmk, be cautious there too, the stamps 20 para, I believe have been forged.
A bit of quick sand area scenario with Turkey.
