Switzerland 25c Switzerland 20F Switzerland 20F used?
50c (H10,red) 20Fr (H19,rose-red) Beware of fake cancels.
It is easy to add something like this.
Comparison of red and rose-red centers.

The naming of colours is always problematic. There are only two types of 20Fr listed, and one is on granite paper.
The used 50c is dated 1878, granite paper was used from 1881.

Switzerland 25c Switzerland 50c
25c (H1 or H15?) 50c (H2 or H16?)
These appear to be without the silk threads, but the centres look like rose-red.

Hiscocks added the following note:

Note. The prices of the earlier issues may seem very high.
                Unfortunately they do in fact line up with those asked and obtained
                by European dealers and there is no point in setting lower prices.
