France 1937 Peace Postal Forgeries webpage

Post by norvic »

I knew only of the 50c Peace 'Bordeaux' Postal Forgery but this article lists others and Google Page Translate (a plug-in on Firefox and others, achieve by Right-click) produces a decent translation.

As we must have an image - these aren't forgeries, they are too early.

France 'Peace' 50c red.
France 'Peace' 50c red.
Pages are devoted to other forgeries, but also to (at random):

The last days of the 1871 agreement / Mystery square ..? / Recommendation of other objects

The American letter in 1870 / Seaway decime / Letters from Tahiti

Tahiti Red Cross / French post in Constantinople / Turkey: mixed franking

Iraq: the Overland mail / Tehran via Russia / Multiple ports

Fixed surcharges, steep fines / The Card and the Tax / Postcard stamping

The illustrated postcard / Fee for cards franked on the back / Taxation of military deductibles
