Portugal Red Cross Prisoner of War Cinderella

Post by Doc Rog »

Hello at Stampboards,

I cannot seem to find any post here that answers my query, so I apologise if it has already been discussed.

The stamp has been impossible for me to find on the internet so far.

Anyone know of it?

Thanks.

This is not an official stamp. It is a cinderella issued to raise funds for the Portuguese Red Cross Society. The full set consists of 4 stamps and retails for about €5.

Red Cross cinderellas issued in 1943

This is a very interesting topic and, as time allows, I will be adding more information on both the official Portugal Red Cross stamps issued until 1936 as well as the later cinderella stamps.
Collecting mainly mint Portugal & colonies, World Cup soccer, astronomy & space exploration, fauna, transport, lighthouses and orchids

Many thanks. I'll look forward to more information on the Red Cross stamps and cinderellas.
