Are the withdrawn stamps / FDCs etc. allowed to be displayed as an exhibit in exhibitions or will they be confiscated :oops:

Can anyone advise on this?

I am no expert on exhibitions. But I cannot see why this would be an issue. A withdrawn stamp has been in most cases valid for postage before withdrawal, and even after. There are occasions where they have been declared invalid, but even then they have been postally valid for the time until the invalidation.

The situation is different for unissued stamps, since they are not valid for postage, and thus one could argue are not postage stamps in the real meaning of the word. This is notwithstanding the fact that often unissued stamps have still been accepted for postage, mostly just unnoticed though.

Fascinating site, zurueckgezogen, but cannot seem to get the "Countries A-Z" section to work. Would it be OK to add the 1960 GB "Long Nose" cancel to "Embarrassing cancels" thread?

Thanks for the appreciation.
Sure use as you wish.

In 1986 Muammar Qaddafi was at the peak of his power as dictator of Libya, before he became a beneficial pseudo-ally to the western nations. On the first of January that year the Libyan Post Office issued a new definitive set of 12 stamps, with face values ranging from 50 to 2550dh (roughly 25p to £12.50), featuring an image of Qaddafi in Military Uniform.

They were subsequently withdraw 2 hours later after somebody noticed that his right shoulder epaulette bore the Star of David, a Jewish symbol hated by the extremist views of hard-line muslims. Now cats at €1000 per set. Wonder what happened to the designer?Image

I am not surprised. But the star on Qaddafi's shoulder pad falls short of the Star of David, in my opinion. The Star of David is a compound of two equilateral triangles. The above lacks the regular hexagon in the middle.

Qaddafi: According to some sources, the 60 Dinhar stamp was issued first when the similarity to the Star of David was noticed. Then the whole set was withdrawn, but the other stamps have never been sold.

A complete set was recently auctioned for 90 GBP, therefore the prices on ebay and Delcampe are way beyond what collectors are willing to pay nowadays. I got mine for about 120 GBP.

In 1998, the Palestinian Authority issued SS shows the Canaanite god Baal. The name Baal, meaning “Lord”, was given by many Canaanite tribes to their chief god. The most renowned Baal of Canaanite mythology was the rain and fertility god associated with the storm god, Hadad. He is often depicted carrying thunderbolt the same as Zeus in the Greek Mythology. The Israelite used the word "Baal" to describe any alien god. It is a general term for a “false god” that the name Baal is used in the bible. He is also mentioned in the Quran as pagan deity.

I just read that the Italian Muslim Association declared a "Fatwa of Dissociation from those who honor Baal" after the SS was issued. Not sure how this information is accurate.

I thought I would add something of age to this forum. NWPI SG100 and SG101. 1d surcharge on 5d Brown and 1d on 1 Shilling Emerald. This issue involved a conspiracy by those working in the post office and treasury in Rabaul in early 1918.

Stocks of the 1d KGV were running short and the treasurer approached the new Administrator requesting that he be allowed to prepare surcharges as provided above. The Administrator had only been in New Guinea for a few days and was totally ignorant of normal postal procedures. He signed an order authorising the surcharges. The stamps were issued on the 23rd May 1918. Unknown to the Administrator large numbers of cancelled panes of 30 of both values had been cancelled at various offices in New Guinea as early as the 24th March 1918. Dealers in Australia had been forewarned of the issue.

Immediately after the 23rd May the Post Office in Rabaul was inundated with telegrams from dealers in Australia and elsewhere requesting copies of the stamps. The Administrator signed an order on the 28th May 1918 withdrawing the issue and making the sale of the stamps and their transmission from New Guinea a court martial offence.

When details of this reached the authorities in Melbourne they required an explanation from Rabaul. Subsequently a court of enquiry was set up to investigate the issue (it ended up as a whitewash). The main outcome, of course, was the statement that there were sufficient 1/2d stamps to cover the 1d deficiency and the shipment of the 1d arrived in Rabaul on the 24th May in any event. Very large sums of money were made selling the panes of 30 at £2 per pane against a face price of 2 shillings and sixpence! Although this was a 'bogus' issue the stamps themselves have now gained respectability and are catalogued around the £100 mark

Thanks much, interesting story. I will look out for these stamps for my collection. I assume they should be purchased expertised ?

There are some forgeries about but I think the cost of the expertisation outweighs the value of the stamp.

Since they have three stars I labelled them exceptional. Exceptional in the sense, that this is the first stamps (I know of) which have a whole Video sequence encoded in the QR Code. Collector's freedom obviously allows me to have my own categorization. I agree that those are not withdrawn stamps obviously. I have extended my original collection with such stamps, since I find this interesting. If I should remove such stamps from this thread I will in the future.

Commonwealth Stamps Opinion is reporting that New Zealand Post has put off an issue after printing but before release.
Withdrawn prior to issue - the set of 4 stamps and 1 miniature sheet commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Maori Language petition due to have been released on 3 August 2022. New Zealand Post Collectables released the statement shown below on 3 August 2022 and announced that the issue would not now take place having received “additional feedback from stakeholders that was received after the products were printed. While extensive consultation took place in the development of the designs, some expectations were not met and as a results the stamps cannot be issued in their current form or on the planned date”.
I won't show the stamps here in case they cause offence.

Withdrawn - we've both used the word, but in fact that should only be used for stamps which have been issued.

Abandoned - or 'pulled' in modern media terms - would be better.

There are no explanations on the Commonwealth Stamps Opinion blog, only that they say the designs are offensive. Sure that for New Zealanders the explanations are unnecessary. Any way, thank you very much.

Thanks, norvic! I know and I read it first time. I asked my question since I, which know nothing about NZ Maori society, don't understand why the designs are offensive and why "some expectations were not met" as the announcement declares. Are the face designs offensive or maybe, the hair colors? Any way, hope they will issue new set with new designs commemorating this important event. Regards

Given that we have members in New Zealand, it would be good if one of them could explain.

You can read pages and pages of the internet about relationships between Mãori and Pākehā settlers, but it wouldn't get you in the mind of either.

In Scott Stamp Monthly (February 2002), the reason explained in details under the heading "Accidental release result in new stamp listing for Bangladesh and Sudan"

it says, the stamp was released from philatelic bureau before the then Prime Minister of Bangladesh officially released the stamp. The stamp sale was stopped within few hours but knowing it, Prime Minister denied to release the stamp afterward.

In Scott Stamp Monthly (February 2002), the reason explained in details under the heading "Accidental release result in new stamp listing for Bangladesh and Sudan"

it says, the stamp was released from philatelic bureau before the then Prime Minister of Bangladesh officially released the stamp. The stamp sale was stopped within few hours but knowing it, Prime Minister denied to release the stamp afterward.

On September, 6, 2020 Australia issued a set of stamps on the theme "Art of the Desert". The set was also present in the yearbooks issued on December 1, 2020 , in executive and deluxe variation as a block of four. The stamp "Boxer Milner, Milnga-Milnga" was missing the imprints "AUSTRALIA" and "2020".

One of the above:

On July 1, 2022, Austria issued the 15th series of dispenser stamps, which were only used directly at post office counters and were not sold mint. The 85 Cent stamp was supposed to depict Güssing Castle in Burgenland, but showed Riegersburg Castle in Styria. The stamp was withdrawn from sale. A corrected stamp was issued with the 16th dispenser series in November 2022, the first day of issue of the stamp backdated to July 1, 2022.
