Ceres and early issues

I wonder if I can ask two questions to the group please.

In relation to the early Ceres issues there is always this difficulty in wondering if they are the later Colony issues. I am aware that with franked stamps you can sometimes check which are France and which are colonies but how in practice beyond the obliterations do people confidently tell? Is there something in the print quality?

Question 2 relates to the attached picture- the paper is stiff and ungummed-is this likely to be a trial sheet or just a forgery??? They were sold to me as Wing margin Ceres.

Thank you for any help you can offer.
