The inverts are well known. However, they are not priced as used in the Scott catalog, only unused. Now from your photo it cannot be determined, but the overprint must be under the cancellation ink to be good. For non-inverted overprinted stamps, used runs about 65-80% of unused.

Opinion: Forgery
The tripartite air mail series was produced through use of cancelled original stamps only.

The points to notice, identify it to me as a forgery

Fuselage 20mm
wings tip to tip 21.5mm

right hand propeller 7.5mm
