Can't remember if there was a "poster" stamp thread, so I'll just add this here. :)

It reads: (Thanks Google translate)
DONATION -.20DM
FOR THE NATIONAL LIBERATION STRUGGLE
The soviet Cenotaph in Treptow
Thanks, Glory and Honor to our Liberators, the heroic Soviet army
11/9/31

cen·o·taph:
A cenotaph is an "empty tomb" or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of people whose remains are elsewhere. It can also be the initial tomb for a person who has since been interred elsewhere.


Image

A mystery for me is the date on the stamp it reads 11/9/31 but the memorial was built in 1949?? Any ideas?

In this case, I suspect "Soviet War Memorial" would be a
better translation.

I think the imprint at bottom is probably the printer's order
number. Germans never write dates like that.

Jay,
I agree it makes it easier to understand saying "war memorial" , but the only translation I can find for ehrenmal is "Cenotaph". When you read the definition, seems to be literally what the site is. But remember, I don't speak/read a word of German, so don't have a clue about contemporary usage.

The "date" thru me off, so at first I was looking for some pre-war, Germany rising, nationalistic connection.
Turns out it was a post-war Russian, thank you for saving us, paid for by the German people.
I wonder how much was raised by the -.20DM "donation"?

The memorial, by the way is quite impressive by looking at the website, and something I would have never gone looking for if I had not come across the label. And, it's what makes it fun (with stamps) digging around finding out new things.

Thanks,
patg

I would still go with "war memorial". You say you used
Google Translate. Yes, the first choice is "cenotaph", but
if you click on it you get several more choices, including
"war memorial". Furthermore, my big fat Cassell's gives
"war memorial" as the first choice and "cenotaph" as the
only other choice.

Good enough for me, "war memorial" it is. At least I learned a new word. :D

Has anyone on the board been to the site? It does look quite impressive.

The last three are Saint Anthony's Guild cinderellas. This from the Saint Anthony Society web site:

Safe mail delivery: A custom has been handed down of marking the letters "S.A.G." somewhere on a letter or package. These initials stand for "St. Saint Anthony Guide". This prayer dates to an incident in July 1729 in Spain. A merchant's wife, in need of support from her husband on business in Peru placed a letter to him in the sleeve of St. Anthony's statue in her parish church, trusting he would somehow deliver it.

Returning to the statue the next day, she found not her own letter but one from her husband, Don Antonio. Lodger in the sleeve was a heavy pouch containing 300 pesos, also sent by him. The merchant advised his wife that a letter from her had been delivered "by a friar of the Order of St. Francis." Don Antonio was sending his reply through the same friar. To this day, the merchant's letter is preserved in the church at Oviedo.

This story led to the custom of placing "S.A.G." on mail and praying that St. Anthony give it safe passage.

St. Anthony's Guild offers packets of stamps imprinted with S.A.G. and pictures of the Saint. To request the stamps, write:

The Franciscans, St. Anthony's Guild

Debbie66: Quite an array of odd&ends. I like the 'War effort" labels by House of Seagram :D

Your first one is a slogan label used with booklet panes (but you knew that :D ). I collect them as I find them, hopefully on cover.

Not sure if this an advertising label / poster stamp, or how it was used. Either way, it has a place in my expo collection.

The below came in a complete mess of a stockbook where most pages had nothing to do with any of the others.
I like charity labels, so was happy to see the selection of very colorful India TB's from the 1950&60's.

I could use some help from our India friends on the top-left one, as to what it was for. Let me know if you need a larger scan.

:lol: theilschein-marke = (Google talk) in part seemingly brand :lol:
Lots of info on The "Hamburg-Amerika Linie". But, as of yet, did not fine any info on this particular 30pf.

As to the other three, I have no idea, so would welcome any hints or guesses.

Panama City Local Post honors Harvey Milk.

Panama City, Florida, October 15, 2012. Gay icon, Harvey Milk, will be honored on a special stamp from the Panama City Local Post shortly, announced Douglas Sandler, postmaster of the service, today.

The 45c stamp is printed in miniature sheets of 10, and will be issued on November 27 2012, the anniversary of Milk’s death.

Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22 1930 – November 27 1978) was the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California, when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He moved from New York City in 1972 to settle in San Francisco, amid a migration of gay men to the Castro District. He won a city supervisor seat in 1977.

He served almost 11 months in office, and was responsible for passing a gay rights ordinance for the city. On November 27, 1978, Milk along with Mayor George Moscone was assassinated by Dan White, a former official. Despite his short career, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and a martyr to the gay community. He was a visionary who imagined a righteous world in his head, then set out to make it real for all.

“Special First Day Covers will be available for the new stamp”, explained Mr Sandler.

The polar bear is called Emmett Nanuq and is actually in the Taniquah royal zoo. Yes you are all right, he's developed a taste for blueberry popsicles and grape drink.
The thing with glasses is Taniquah's Prime minister and has the Kings ear.

I have decided that in 2013 I will issue a series of local post stamps. They will be sheets the people who will be honored in the series titled "Gay, Lesbian and Bi-sexual Heroes on stamps".

Sheet 2 of 5 George Moscone will be released February 2013
Sheet 3 of 5 Barney Franks will be released April 2013
Sheet 4 of 5 Prime minister of Iceland will be released July 2013
Sheet 5 of 5 6 politicians current and former will be released September 2013
After sheet 4 a presentation folder for all issues will be made. (release date may change)

The first sheet of 2013 will be a Panama City Views celebrating World local Post Day January 28, 2013 also there will be a sheet honoring PUSSY RIOT the Russian collective punk band that was jailed by the oppressive Russian government. it will be released March 2013. (again dates are subject to change)

The PUSSY RIOT stamp sheet is issued to remind people that freedom can be lost and to put pressure on Putin to release the band. I love having a local post I just wish I had a budget and recieved funds to help design the stamps and print them.

Some of my favourite Lundy cinderellas
Image
The first set of Lundy

Some of the rarer early 40s, overprints, 1942 Victory, 1943 Tighearna minisheet and 1944 9th anniversary
Image
Unlike later Lundy sets, the high values had very limited printings of a few thousand or even a few hundred. The 4 puffin is the most scarce and this one is missing the dot over the i.
Image

You can see how crude but fascinating the printing was on the stamp too, some stamps the gold border is completely missing on some margins.

A nice Wright brothers set nearly complete. Lundy was the first place to completely commemorate them in a set, only 40 years after their flight.

Some of my later Lundy's include this scarce 1972 light house set. The 1 and 2 Puffin are common as many were used in mail, but the high values are very scarce.
Image

This modern set from this year
Image
Lundy has now been issuing stamps for 83 years, surely one of the longest ever for a cinderella country.

And a nice block of 772 Puffin with 5 x 150 Puffin of 2006 Montagu set, this is the highest face value ever on a Lundy stamps.
Image

Oh and 1 Puffin is equivalent to one British pence so 772 puffin is 7.72 GBP.

I also love the early cinderella issues of Tristan Da Cunha. They got official stamps in 1952, but in 1946 had tried to get a set of 9 passed for local use with ates and pence in potatoes due to the fact locals never if ever had cash on them.

This 1962 facsimile sheet of 9 shows them.
Image

Of these only the one penny was printed in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1946. This is one of the copies, a scarce and very collectable cinderella.

Image

The designer Alan Crawford, also signed these sheetlets of 4 in the early 60s for collectors and the Tristan Islanders got the proceeds (At the time many were in South Africa or Britain due to the Volcano erupting in 1961)

Image

It appears to be hand signed rather than facsimiled. I also have a blank sheetlet with no stamp images or signature.

I also have this copy of the cinderella with no 1/- on it. Another version of .5d apparently showed George VI at the microphone.

Tristan da Cunha 1946 Potato set, essays printed on glossy paper, but only the One Penny was ever available.

I am impressed by the early Tristan potato essays! The 2d grey shows King George the sixth seated at a desk with a microphone. Perhaps this photo was used to make the movie "The King's Speech"?

Apparently he suffered badly from a stutter.

So am I - with the REAL essays.

However, above we have a crappy looking set of modern and fuzzy laser printed fakes of the real essays.

The real 1d issued stamp, and the genuine well engraved essays are shown below.

No, these are typography-printed on gloss paper. Not laser-fakes at all!

They are crappy, amateur, and fuzzy, and a modern con.

Created by you last week more than likely, and you were trying to sell this junk here as a set of '1946 essays' - self-described by you, until that offer was locked and removed.

We have a duty of care here to protect members from such deceptive offers. And we will, and you have been warned before - this is for the last time.

Admin, I am assuming MINE are real though (The single and the later sheets from the 60s,) just Panterra's interpretations are not.
I think he knows his are modern cons.
My ones look yellow because of a cheap camera I own that I don't know how to change the falsh on, the sheets are a very pale white colour and thin paper, my single has a creamish coloured gum on back and is a thicker paper with a bright red colour.

Perhaps Seagrams are worried that a rumour will get around about what sort of "health conditions" (or lack thereof!) prevail in their bottling plant!
Debbie66:
Thought of your "House of Seagrams" war labels when I found this. It's a sheet of 48 (48 states at that time)

Which reminds me I found a nice USA 48 star flag when cleaning out my Mom's house.
49th Alaska, 50th Hawaii!
Wandered off there for a minute :lol: (I'm back)

Too bad it has a lot of selvage separation.

Any other "house labels" out there?

That was a hand-stamped overprint by one of the guys in the Lundy Collectors' Club, using some old mint stamps he had.

Lundy don't make it to the Scott cat (yet!)

I'm sure we have seen this, I like your Harvey Milk one more and the label with the postcard that looks like the cover to the first Springsteen album (Welcome to Asbury Park).

A cinderella way off centre, but good looking anyway.

"Dodgy delivery" would be closer.

Sold to the gullable at a high price.
Who knows, it may one day increase in value.

Looks interesting. Any history: where, when & why?? Looks oldish but printing looks new.
Are you the gullible one? If so, we've probably all been there once (or twice). :lol:

This is a postcard with the Cinderella Duckstad stamp 1c used and cancelled by Dutch Post.
The Duckstad stamps were issued in two sheets somewhere around 1980 as a special gift of the Walt Disney weekly magazin "Donald Duck", in which magazin Donald is living in the town Duckstad.

Quite a few Westons winery stamps were issued. They are based in Dunedin, NZ.

The RPSNZ Library actually holds a copy of The Wine Post Handbook 1982-95, 30 pages.
