In February 1944, the French Resistance (Forces Françaises de l’Intérieur, or FFI) printed this forgery of the French 1.50 Franc Pétain issue. The stamp is of significantly lower quality than the original, and features a different perforation (11.5 instead of the original 14:13.5). It can also be found in multiple shades.
The stamps were printed in sheets containing four panes, each 6×4. The rear of each pane contains a rubber handstamp of the printers, the Direction Atelier des Faux.
