Hi all, I'm not a Cinderella man so I wonder if someone can tell me if this is one?

South American country maybe?

Italy: it is one of the revenue stamps used to pay a tax on school exercise books. This was issued in 1936.
The first number (2) is the amount of the tax (cents of lira), the second (8) is number of sheets of the book: being folded in the middle and double sided they made up 32 pages.

Its a 1936 Italian revenue stamp for use on notebooks.

SORRY ... never saw the reply and i cant delete my post

The first item, with French inscription, is probably a cinderella, but I don't have any particular knowledge about it.

Norwegian label

The second label is certainly a Norwegian cinderella, a Christmas seal.
Its fundraising objective is broader than the more usual treatment of tuberculosis.

nz-Lewis-essay-shts-GRN&PUR.jpg
New Zealand 1892 Lewis essay, replica sheets.


Trademe auction website wrote:Early New Zealand stamps were very dull and boring in appearance, until the 1898 Pictorial issue brought elegant and intricate interesting designs before the mail-receiving folk of the planet.

The lead-up to the 1898 Pictorial set is interesting. A certain Charles Lewis was Member of Parliament for Christchurch. He conceived the idea of pictorial stamps, and submitted some original designs in large format to the Post Office in 1892. After considering them, in 1895 the Post Office announced a design competition and invited designs, from which those making the 1898 set were chosen.

The Fivepence value was printed in miniature sheets of ten, and some were recently discovered.

Each stamp shows the Chalon portrait of Queen Victoria (as used on the first NZ stamps of 1855), a sailing ship, and in tiny print, the text "The Lewis Engraving Process".

These stamp essays are mentioned in "The Postage Stamps of NZ", volume one.

Originals of the 1892 printing are now being offered for around $12,000 per sheet at auction.

==
DISCLAIMER:
Please note that these are NOT those original essays, but modern reproductions of them, which have been perforated for collectors.

Note also that these are not NZ postage stamps, but merely replicas of a proposal for some, designed in 1892.

==

If you are rich and a serious philatelist, you possibly should try to bid for one of those "original" 1892 printings. But if you don't want to spend that sort of cash, you may perhaps be content to have these replica sheets in your collection (or to use on mail.)

==
Lewis was born in Christchurch in 1857 and attended Christ's College, and Clifton and Malvern Colleges in England. He inherited his father's farm in Halswell.

He entered parliament winning the 1896 by-election in the Christchurch electorate. Lewis represented this electorate until 1901 when he resigned. He then represented Courtenay electorate from 1902 to 1908, when he retired to Waipukurau and committed suicide there in 1927.
I regularly offer the set of two of these minisheets for auction. A recent client bought such a set, and when I went to send them to him, found that one of the green minisheets had a "double perf" error, so sent him that, thinking he would enjoy getting an unusual error.

Lewis-sht-error.jpg

But today, I got an email from him reporting they had arrived and he is delighted, but is upset that one sheet has the "double perf" error, and wonders if he could trade it in for a "normal."

Of course, I told him to return it, and I'll happily send a "normal". I never thought I'd get a philatelist declining the chance to own an error!

The Japanese label is lovely and shows aurora australis - southern lights. I collect auroras on stamps but have not seen a cinderella showing them before. :D

Latest update on this saga: the client is demanding the "replacement sheet" without returning the error!
I wrote:Sure Ross, you are welcome to return that error sheet, and I will send a replacement.

Please post to me at

Imperial Stamp Co.,
P.O. Box 876,
Auckland 1140.


regards, Bruce.
Ross wrote:You can’t just send me a replacement?
I wrote:Well yes, but I do need the error sheet to be returned before I send the replacement.

Isn't that how the clothing store operates if you buy a faulty pair of trousers?
"Bring it back and we will replace it."

Thank you.
Ross wrote:Well I sure as heck am not going to spend more money and time sending you a $2.25 item because you tried to give me a product that is not what you described or showed a photo of. You might want to check the Consumer Guarantees Act. I just assumed you would do the right thing over a pretty petty matter mate.

I will give you a few days to man up before I give you bad feedback.
I wrote:Happy to replace the faulty item if you send back the unwanted item.

Come on, it's only $1.40 for a stamp! No need to be stingy!
I find it rather bizarre that the client is taking this attitude! Anyone else think I should just send him a replacement sheet without getting the error back?

I hesitate to get involved in a private disagreement which has become public,
but may I offer an impartial mediatorial suggestion?

Panterra, you clearly place higher value on the doubly-perforated sheetlet than
your client does. Your client appears to be unwilling to spend postage to return
the sheetlet he received. I suggest you offer to send him a "fault-free" replacement
sheetlet plus mint current stamps equal to twice the first class postage rate so this
will refund his postage plus compensate him for his inconvenience
after he returns
the "faulty" sheetlet to you.

This would mean you pay three times the postage to recover the "faulty" sheetlet (your
postage to send the replacement to him, plus refund of his postage, and a "compensation"
gesture), but that recognises that you value the "faulty" sheetlet more highly than your
client does, and more highly than you value the "fault-free" sheetlet.

If that solution is not accepted by your client, I suggest that one might suspect his
commitment to fair dealing...

Reminds me of a certain country with an error in its yearbook.

Didn’t they just send out a replacement no charge for “goodwill” ? If you asked for it...... 8-)

The French Connection

cin1.jpg
.
Thanks to detective work by nigelc, we are presented with the information that the design was used
on an EP [Extended Play] record cover from 1970 from the French group Les Frères Jacques:

Image
.
Les Frères Jacques
Les Frères Jacques is a French vocal quartet, active from 1946 to 1982, composed of André Bellec, Georges Bellec, François Soubeyran and Paul Tourenne. The group reached a peak in the art of combining song and mime, and performed songs by many authors, including Prévert and Kosma (Barbara, Out of school, among many others), Serge Gainsbourg (Le Poinçonneur des Lilas), by Stéphane Golmann (La Marie-Joseph), or Ricet-Barrier (Eugénie de Beaulieu)...
Style of their songs
• Traditional songs
• Humorous songs (Song without calcium, The jam or General Castagnetas)
• Fantasies on classical music (La Truite by Franz Schubert, on a text by Francis Blanche)
• Pure poetry (Jacques Prévert, Raymond Queneau, Boris Vian, Bernard Dimey)
• Squeaky texts (Les Bonnes, anti-bourgeois satire)
• Sad songs for crying, and street philosophy
• Bawdy songs (La Digue du cul)
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Fr%C3%A8res_Jacques
In 1970 they recorded Leaving school, ref. : Super 45 Tours PPN 4196
It looks as if school and education was one of their themes, with tacit support for the campaign
represented by the poster on the record cover.

The text at the bottom right corner of the record cover advances this theme:

Screen Shot 2021-04-21 at 12.57.32 pm.png
.
La Ligue française de l'enseignement et de l'education permanente
The French League for Instruction and Lifelong Education
La Ligue de l'enseignement et de l'education permanente was initially conceived and created by the journalist Jean Macé, on 15 November 1866. It was advocated for by liberal press, as public, free, compulsory and secular education. A congress convened in 1881, which gave La Ligue its federal form. In 1925, after World War I, La Ligue decentralised in order to create even greater access for the public needs. Midway through World War II, in 1942, the league was dissolved.

In a re-founding convening congress in 1945, La Ligue deepened its involvement in secularism and the humanities. To this day it remains a member of the European Humanist Federation and the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ligue_de_l%27enseignement
Summary: La Ligue promotes compulsory free public secular education.
La campagne de la Quinzaine de l'école publique, organisée depuis 1946 par la Ligue de l'enseignement avec le soutien du ministère de l'Éducation nationale, se déroulera du lundi 3 mai au dimanche 16 mai 2010, avec une collecte autorisée sur la voie publique le dimanche 16 mai 2010...
Extended English translation of this 2010 Bulletin Official announcement:
Official Bulletin of National Education, Youth and Sports, 29 April 2010 wrote:The Public School Fortnight campaign, organised since 1946 by the Education League with the support of the Ministry of National Education, will take place from Monday 3 May to Sunday 16 May 2010 , with an authorised collection on public roads on Sunday May 16, 2010.
Renamed “No education, no future”, the campaign finances projects in favour of access to education throughout the world, with a priority for French-speaking countries. Every year since 2002, the Secular Solidarity Association has been a partner of the operation. Students and teachers can, if they wish, join the campaign and participate in the sale of stickers organised in the departments by the federations of secular works.
The campaign is an opportunity for students to become aware of inequalities in access to education in the world and to join in an action of solidarity. From primary school to high school, teachers will be able to use the educational tools developed by the Education League which are available on its website https://laligue.org/.
Conclusion/Inferences: Annually since 1946, La Ligue de l'enseignement has promoted participation by French public schools in a fundraising fortnight, intended to raise students' awareness of educational inequalities worldwide, and contribute funds towards easing that inequality. The 1970 Fortnight was promoted by sales of the cinderella label shown at the start of this post. Supporters contributed 50 centimes per label.

I have no idea if this classifies as Cinderella as it is not a formal stamp but a parody, but it is my favorite anyway:

I have no idea if this classifies as Cinderella as it is not a formal stamp but a parody, but it is my favorite anyway:

Or was it for propaganda as well?

Australian WWII Cinderella

Elsewhere I showed this recently acquired 1943 censored cover from Australia to USA. The reason I bought it is the WWII cinderella, part of the Australian war effort, promoting frugality with scarce resources needed for military purposes.

Another Australian WWII Cinderella

From the same wartime period, here is a cover mainly created for the first day cancellation of the stamps on the front (and quite valuable as a result), but incidentally carrying on the back a nice Lady Gowrie Red Cross one penny fundraiser, with part of the red official inscription on the attached right selvedge. This cover was shown by agondocz in another thread:

Here’s a piece of a sheet from around WWII if i remember correctly.

A nice example of national romanticism that was big in this era.

Made by the Swedish Defence promotion.
The text says:
With united force against external violence.

Are Belgian railway stamps, which I have quite a few of, considered Cinderella stamps ?

Hello kelliegirl33.

May I comment about Belgian Railway Stamps as a category? I regard them as a special category of postage stamps, not cinderella stamps.

• Belgian railway stamps have a face value, and their role was to show in advance that the appropriate fee had been paid for the carriage of a parcel from origin station to destination station within the Belgian railway network.

• The Belgian railway stamps were issued with official authority.

• Cinderella stamps often do not have a face value (e.g. poster stamps, promoting an event or product).

• Cinderella stamps that do have a face value were often fund raisers, and the face value was the suggested donation amount (e.g. Red Cross fund raisers).

• Other cinderella stamps with apparent face values simulate postage stamps, but the face values were not the actual cost of the stamps, and they did not represent payment for an actual carriage service (e.g. stamps for non-existent countries).

• Other cinderella stamps again have an actual face value, and paid for a "local" carriage service, but were entirely unofficial and private in nature (e.g. goat mail, rocket mail, balloon mail).

It's tricky to make definitions that cover all possible cases, but items that don't lie close to the boundaries of a category can be classified with confidence. I think it is safe to treat Belgian railway parcel stamps as postage stamps (which paid for a particular official carriage service).

/RogerE :D
