I have attached a page from my father’s passport showing that he was in Czechoslovakia in 1946, when he picked up this folder of stamps (unfortunately badly worn over the years).
I know that the stamps themselves are not valuable but is there any record of why the folder was produced and whether the cancellations are of any significance.
Any help from the wise men of this forum would be welcome.
Thanks, Alan Parry

Sadly the stamps you show have been ravaged by "rust" (a form of mould), probably from being stored in damp conditions which reduces their desirability and value. Of course, they retain any sentimental value they have to you and your family.

The top one honours Mozart, who had links with Prague - a couple of his operas had their first performance in Prague.
The Czech PS auctions usually have a few and they generally sale for betwen £3 and £10 in good condition
