I found reference to one being sold at a philatelic auction in 2004 for $50 (AUD) (Premier postal Auct 50, 12 Aug 2004)
but there was no photo to see if it was in better or worse condition than the one I have.

One of my favorite things to find are tied labels:
Here is one I found in a random box lot. I first thought it was a stamp, but with a closer look saw it had no denomination, and the label reads Raittiuden Ystavat = "Friends of Temperance", according to Bablefish.

(from the internet)
Although the temperance movement in Finland stems back to the 1830's, it was not until the founding of the Friends of Temperance in 1884 that the modern crusade against alcoholism really began.The growth of the organization was rapid; membership increased from 5,700 in 1888 to 10,277 in 1900. Five years later there were over 34,000 members on the roll of the Friends.

That's about all I know right now. I've got some more digging to do.

Any other info appreciated.

Best to all,
pat

I am not sure these local posts are new to me, I try to find local posts that went through the mail or were issued for a reason, I hope someone here on stampboards can help me out, as I said this is new to me. I have a one frame right now because money is tight, but this can go to a six frame exhibit, but there is no infomation on some of the local posts.

There used to be (maybe still is?) a club in USA: the Local Posts Collectors' Society.

Try to trace it and join. Secretary back in the days I was in touch was Wayne D. Martel, in Toledo, OH.

This is true.

And cinderellas are nearly always issued in very limited numbers, so just on scarcity" level, they will trump SG-listed stuff any day!

Saw mine listed on a bid-smart auction. Closed at (I'm sure a record) of 1¢.
If you want to see a real one (Lot 58): http://www.siegelauctions.com/2004/874/874.pdf est $75k-100K. Closed at $115K! Auction was in 2004.

VERY FINE. ONE OF THREE RECORDED COVERS FLOWN BY THE BUFFALO BALLOON AND
POSTED WITH UNITED STATES STAMPS, OF WHICH ONLY TWO ARE AVAILABLE TO
COLLECTORS. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED COVER WITH ONE AND TWO-CENT DENOMINATIONS...

Plus quite a few other classic covers you seldom get to see.

(edit) found another that sold for $8 (I was worried there for a minute) :lol:

Here are some cinderella(s) that some here on the stampboards were not aware of, and the subject of my next one frame, did a synopsis on the exhibit covered all about these NASA cinderella(s), here one of them.

Image

There are others with different local posts, I believe that with the backstory this exhibit will win big, I am going to go slow so as not to rush and mess it up.

Like Panterra, I also agree with you.

I have several Malta cinderellas. I'll start with my avatar:
Image
31 October or 1 November 1941. Help the Malta Relief Fund.
Perf 11. No watermark.

These are quite common labels here in Malta. In the local JB Auction, they cost about £4-£5 each. Of course, on eBay they are listed at £10-£20 each, and unsurprisingly very few sell:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190667428272
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290722639741

In Grosvenor sale 60, there was a first day cover of these labels (lot 3484). It is about halfway down the page:
https://grosvenorauctions.com.cluster.cwcs.co.uk/dyn_pages/hi ... ta&page=17

On Revenue Reverend (scroll about ¼ of the page down), there is:
Note: the issue of this label was advised in the Malta Government Gazette (no 8895) on 31st October 1941. It was withdrawn from sale as of 13th October 1945 (advised in Gazette no 9364, 10th October 1945).
More to come :arrow: :arrow:

c.1943. Gratitude seal to the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.
Perf 11. No watermark.

These are very scarce in Malta. I got the one above from eBay for a little over £10. Here are a couple of others from eBay (these are the only ones I saw for sale):

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170842552003 (sold for £7)
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190595646089 (for sale at US$22)

When they do appear, they retail from £10 to £20+.

c. 1948. Buy a Malta Government Lottery Ticket (with an unofficial Maltese flag)
No wmk. Perf 11.

These labels are now seldom seen. Up to a few years ago they appeared regularly in auctions (they fetched about £4-£5 each), but very few are seen now. I got the one on cover above from an online dealer in the UK (not on eBay) for £7.50. The only one I ever saw on eBay was on a FDC of the 1d from the 1949 Silver Wedding issue, which sold for US$7.26.

Among my favorite cinderellas are the stamps of Tarajara.

Image
TARAJARA STAMPS: Cats, Painting, Fidel Castro, Vladimir Lenin, John Okello, Mao Zedong, Mushroom, Flower.

Tarajara is an "imaginary country" dreamed up by the New Zealand Army so they could have "war-games" against it. It is intended to be (quite obviously) New Caledonia, but they can't say that, as France is in theory a "friend" (despite blowing up a Greenpeace ship in Auckland harbour.)

So when this fake land was announced in the media, I decided to print stamps for it.

Image
TARAJARA STAMPS: President Nguema of Equatorial Guinea, Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, Chairman Pot of Kampuchea, Winston Churchill of GB. (Something for everyone there!)

I had great fun doing these stamps, and distributing them to friends, and using on mail (local carriage only!) Since Tarajara is at war with both NZ & Australia, it was a good vehicle to show Kiwi atrocities also, and they hit home (the sadist member of parliament shown on the 70 franc left parliament as a result, so one less sadist making laws has GOT to be a good thing, surely!)

Image
KIWI ATROCITIES: David Benson-Pope (Member of Parliament) tortured schoolboys with tennis-balls and rope when he taught school. Helen Clark dropped poison spray over residential areas from aircraft. Tupua Tamasese of Samoa was shot in the back by NZ police while on a peaceful unarmed protest march. The ship "Talune" with which the Kiwis introduced influenza to Samoa in 1918.

In some lands, they have coups and shoot folks. In NZ, we just make funny stamps, and embarrass the sadists out of their high perch. In the case of the Helen Clark stamp, she was embarrassed enough to call off the poison spray that was being dropped on residential areas of Auckland and Hamilton! Not many stamps that could claim that sort of success!

And surely a sticker opposing corruption in the dodgy NZ Post has got to be a good idea?

Image
My car proudly urges end to corruption with this sticker on its back window. Several NZ dealers sell these to their clients. Like one for your car?

Folks who would like some Tarajara stamps are welcome to get in touch. I'm happy to trade.

I just posted the judges sheet from my postal strike exhibit that was at COLOPEX 2012 June 8-10, 2012 and fixed the things the judges said, although once my article on postal strikes and doing a exhibit is published by the American Philatelic Society in either July or August. Once it is published If anyone wants a copy e-mail me and I will mail a hard copy to you.

I will be starting my own local post and when I get the stamp printed I will discuss and reveal all the details. I will be using the stamp to post on my outgoing mail, I may or may not sell them and a FDC if there would be a interest. I am also getting a dated stamper that will look like a official USPS cancel.

I have not desided on the final design of the stamp, but stay tuned.

(the actual stamps are line engraved and look better than in real life than in this photo)
1948. Malta Memorial District Nursing Association.
Perf 12½. No watermark.

These labels were issued sometime between the founding of the MMDNA in 1945 and 1948.
On Revenue Reverend, there is:
The earliest recorded example of L42* is on an Associate Card dated 25 March 1948.
* L42 is the 5/- green

These are frequent in Malta, but there is no guarantee that you will find them. Like most Malta labels, they fetch £4-£5 each. Blocks of 4 of both values are also sometimes seen. I've never seen either stamp on eBay.

I have never seen either value used. All the ones available seem to be in MUH or MH condition.

The 5/- exists as a colour trial in blue and overprinted WATERLOW & SONS LTD. / SPECIMEN. This is very rare and I never saw it on sale. The only time I physically saw one was in the Maltex exhibition of 2009.

These are (in my opinion) Malta's best Cinderellas in terms of the design. Note that the MMDNA exists to this day:
https://www.mmdna.com/page2.html

In 1995, a postage stamp was issued to commemorate the Association's fiftieth anniversary:

The last Malta Cinderella stamp I have...
Image
1950s-60s (?). Keep them Going - Buy Malta Made Goods.
Imperf. No watermark.

These are common labels in Malta and fetch £4-£5 as well. I have no clue as to when they were issued and by whom, and I would appreciate any information about this label.

They look as if they were issued between the late 1940s and early 1960s, before Malta became independent in 1964.
____________________________
Revenue Reverend (see link in previous post) also lists five additional Malta labels - one issued by the Singer Sewing Machine Company and four by the Anglo-Maltese League. I have never seen any of those available in Malta or on the internet.

These are Malta's Cinderellas (issued in Malta, not foreign but Malta-related) I know of:

#1. c. 1920. Singer 2/- label.
#2. 1937 Anglo-Maltese League 6d.
#3. 1938 Anglo-Maltese League 6d.
#4. 1939 Anglo-Maltese League 6d.
#5. 1940 Anglo-Maltese League 6d.
#6. 1941. Help the Malta Relief Fund. Sells for £4-£5.
#7. c.1943. Gratitude seal to the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. Sells for £10-£20+
#8. 1948. MMDNA 1s3d orange. Sells for £4-£5.
#9. 1948. MMDNA 5s green. Sells for £4-£5.

#9a. 1948. MMDNA 5s blue - Specimen.
#10. c. 1948. Buy a Malta Government Lottery Ticket. Sells for £4-£7.
#11. 1950s-60s. Keep them going - Buy Malta made goods. Sells for £4-£5.


(this is no official numbering system - I made it up myself)

The ones in red are the ones I have in my collection and therefore posted in this thread. The uncloured ones are missing from my collection but reference has been made to them in my earlier posts.

I've posted all Cinderella labels. Now on to 1980s - 2000s Cinderella miniature sheets. :arrow: :arrow:

I have never seen any of these before.

By "larger version of the flag label", do you mean a larger version of this:

or of this?

PS. Nice cover / aerogramme. :) Malta Cinderellas are quite hard to come by on cover (although I'm finding the govt. lottery label hard to come by off cover :shock: ).

Thanks for the pics Allan :)

However were those labels issued in Malta only or were they some sort of patriotic labels issued all around the Empire?

:roll: :roll: No idea if these were an issue in Malta only or a general issue.

As they were on mail from Malta - I thought they were worth showing - and I would be intrested to hear comments from others regarding their issue, distribution etc if there is information avaliable.

They are worth showing :)

I searched a bit about British Empire patriotic labels on Google but all that came up were images of the Maltese gratitude seal ( :!: ) and of Indian labels from this thread: http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?t=17041

I'm also aware of gratitude labels similar to the Malta one but from other colonies (I recall one from Barbados (or Bermuda :?: ) which I saw on eBay quite some time ago). Does anyone have any?

Among my favorite cinderellas are the stamps issued by the Kingdom of Taniquah, a small Maori island a bit to the north of Norfolk Island.

I like cinderellas since I recently discovered them, I hope to add to the greater knowledge and encourage others to collect by issuing my own local posts.

If you can send me your snail mail address I can mail actual sheets with all the details, but remember this local post is primarilly for me to frank my mail :) , be on a postage stamp (with the first issue) :D and try to encourage stamp collecting (which when I sell stamps on ebay I will frank the package) :D , not many issues will be sold as I can't afford to print large amounts :cry: . The second issue will be released in October and the third (which is not done yet) in December and will have 3 subjects with 3 demoniations.

I think they are great! Wish I was an "alcohol thematic collector" to appreciate the Oktoberfest stamp more! As it is, I just settle for the real thing in bottle or glass.

I have desided that there will be only one first day issue for the first issue due to budget cutbacks. this is the FDC for issue number 1
Image

The local post cancel will be used on the stamp this is the proof.
for issue two the chaset will be different but have a Panama City feel, and since I am funding this by myself this is the way it's going to be. I am doing these stamps for my own mail and second hope to bring new collectors to the stamp table.

Another nice label on a common cover.

Which appears to be still going strong after 99 years.
https://www.starr.org/history

"In 1913 a young man named Floyd Starr purchased a ramshackle barn and forty scrub-covered acres in Albion, Michigan and began what would eventually become one of the nation’s most respected child and family charities. Floyd Starr founded Starr Commonwealth as a refuge for "homeless, dependent, neglected and delinquent boys." It strives to change personal outcomes, one individual at a time."

Well, not so much a "Cinderella", as a promotional sticker for the national wildlife federation. But it's used & tied on cover, and it's very big.
