Should I add these Labels into my WW Stamp Collection??

Post by saifbeg »

Due to recent events, I have been sorting Kiloware and found these labels.

This for me is a new area and as far as I am aware, Scott does not list them.

While I do not plan to throw them away, they would be in a zip-lock bag kept in storage, what materials would you need to sort and classify them?

Is it worthwhile to incorporate them?

Frankly, what should I do with them?

Images are below for examples of what I have:

What you have are examples of postal stationery cut outs.

Originally, these would have been postage paid indicia on for example envelopes sold by the post office. They were subsequently cancelled just the same as would be envelopes with stamps affixed, and then cut off. With stamps on envelopes etc one can soak the stamps off, here there is no need to soak the, and yes, you can collect them - thay add variation to a collection.

The Finnish one is a selfadhesive 1st class postage stamp.

Oh, that's new to me. Thank you. You learn something new everyday!

Are there catalogues for postal stationary cut outs? I know Scott has then for the US but I don't think they have them for others.

Oh I see. It doesn't feel like a self adhesive 1st class postage stamp, as I've dealt with those before, but rather like the postage stamp being printed directly on paper as the rest of these postage stationary.

In 2000 Scott it was 845C. Some of these stamps have straight edges with printed perforation, such as this. However, some later designs had simulated perforations.

I don't think this design has been ever used in postal stationery.

Regarding the catalogues for postal stationery: there is no good one on the market. The best is Higgins & Gage catalogue which was printed last in 1980's. It covers whole world.

For Europe, there is Michel (in German) that covers in 3 parts while Europe (Germany, East Europe and West Europe), unless it has been split into more parts. That should be current.

For the rest of the world you may have to go country by country, and some countries will not be covered. For old postal stationery you can get Senf postal stationery catalogue that covers whole world (in German). Mine is from 1911. I don't know when they discontinued it but the whole catalogue has not been printed after WW II, making that the absolutely latest possible year.

Country catalogues that I know include (outside of Europe) USA, UN, Canada, Australia, Japan, Malaysia (including all preceding entities) and Singapore. However, I believe there are more.
