Correct! All cancels and covers are fake - only the stamps used are genuine. This type of red-band chinese envelope is available even today in mainland China. Compared them with other genuine red band covers, the "red" is somewhat paler. Also note that the style of hand writing of the middle cover addressed to Potsdam is identical to many fake China Large Dragon, Small Dragon, Red Revenue, Dowager, CIP bisects etc on mainland china sellers ebay listing. Conclusion - Done by the same forger.
