Faroe Islands Scott 1

One of these stamps is a genuine stamp and the other(s) is a forgery. Can you tell the difference?

View The Hint

The handstamp surcharge which makes Denmark 97 Faroe Islands 1 has been forged. Some variation can be expected with handstamps but on the genuine the slash through the "O" should be relatively thin and the serif at top left of the "E" relatively short.
