My Catalogue of Postal Stationery Newspaper Wrappers

Post by Spencer »

For some time I have been compiling a catalogue of newspaper wrappers.

It is still a work in progress about 75% complete.

A pdf version of the catalogue, as it is at present, is available to download.

The link to the page to download the file is as follows:

Thank you for making this available - and free of charge, too.

This is a real labour of love. I have enjoyed looking at the areas I collect and will spend more time tomorrow enjoying the whole document.

I expect you wanted comments. The only error I've discovered so far, is the spelling of "Gibralter" for "Gibraltar".

Well done a great looking document, and clearly a labour of love.

Do you want people to comment on the content and or suggested prices or just enjoy?

On a related subject you posted a topic on a Cyprus NW Cut Out. If you want to see a cover with the same Numeral and cds have a look at Lugdunum auction sale no 74 lot 842.

Have you considered listing some of the recognised "used abroad" usages, I thinking of things like the early Gibraltar used in Morocco, GB used in Cyprus, Levant etc, (I saw the reference to India in Aden) Also possibly the On Her Majesty's Service overprints.

Were any India used in the Gulf States?

As I obtain information and copies/images of "used abroad" wrappers, printed to private order wrappers etc this will be added to the catalogue in due course.

Up to now I have obtained (or seen) a comprehensive range of books on the subject - these are all listed on
http://www.stampboards.com/images/stampdomain/newswrapper/bibliography.htm

If anyone is aware of any other reference books on the subject of newspaper wrappers, I would very much to hear about them.

Great catalogue and bibliography! :D

You might like to add Greece Postal Stationery by George Stratoudakis (1985) even though it only lists seven wrappers as far as I can see (4 from Greece, 2 from Samos and 1 French Currency wrapper from Austrian Levant).

Jan,

Under Hungary you have a footnote wondering about the difference between
Michel S2 and S3. Here it is.

Image link inactive. Removed by moderator

In the envelope design, S2 shows the front of the envelope (blank) and S3
shows the back (flaps).

While I'm at it, for S1 I have a strip of 5 and for S2 I have strips of 3 and 4.

You have North German Postal District in your Table of Contents, but I can't
seem to find it in the listings. I can supply scans of Michel S1 and S2 if you
need them.

For Bavaria I have a used (!) pair of your number 011.

For Württemberg I have an unused pair of no. 001.

For Germany I have no. 006 with a DRUCKPROBE perfin.

Jay,

Thank you for the information / scans on the Hungary wrappers - now I know what to look for - I had until recently only used H&G for Hungary and it's not listed there.

The North German Postal District is part of the "work in progress" and will be included in the next version soon.

I would be very pleased if you could supply a scan of the Germany 006 with a DRUCKPROBE perfin - I was not aware of its existence.

Jan,

Here it is.

Image link inactive. Removed by moderator

Here are a few more that may be of interest.

Michel S7A with private Zudruck.

Image link inactive. Removed by moderator

Michel S8 with private Zudruck.

Image link inactive. Removed by moderator

Michel S8, bundle of 10 with official band.

Image link inactive. Removed by moderator

I note that the wrapper you show for German Democratic Republic is a private
issue. There were no officially issued wrappers from DDR.

If you're interested, I can supply scans of most of the private wrappers from
West Germany and West Berlin. Also PS 22-24 from Germany (but the earlier
ones have already been sold).

If you need any scans of wrappers from Germany or Hungary I will be glad to
oblige if I have them. But ask me soon. These are all from the estate of a good
friend, and within the month everything remaining will be shipped to Germany
for auction.

I should have noted that the band around the bundle of S8 reads "Neue
Postwerthzeichen" on both sides of the central "10 Stück ..." section.

The cut-down Helgoland wrappers are almost always reprints
(and were produced that way).

Over the last year or so the catalogue has grown in size considerably. From about 140 pages (in May last year) to 310 pages today. Looks like there is another 20 or 30 pages left to do.

Soon there will be an annoucement of the publication date.

Australia KGV 1d Red NEWSPAPER WRAPPER. Superb MUH UNFOLDED!
A gem added to stock today. Australia KGV 1d Red NEWSPAPER WRAPPER. Superb MUH UNFOLDED.

The very first KGV issue - Die 1 on vertical laid very coarse weave paper. totally bereft of wording.

Totally UNFOLDED .. near all WW1 era wrappers are folded of course, and are cat thus.

And full unmounted - full gum flap - no collector has ever used a few huge hinges to keep this on a page etc.

So we have an unfolded MUH wrapper. Will you ever see another in your lifetime - almost certainly not.

Have I ever owned one in 30 years of dealing - absolutely not! So that makes this exceedingly uncommon to put it mildly. Even folded and ratty are most uncommon.

Incredibly fresh condition for near 100 years old. Very coarse thin paper, so a few tiny natural wood pulp fibre chips here and there in the paper fabric, as is normal.

Perfect stockbook or album page size.

A cute use I listed up here today -
Image

Image
Vic 1892 Newspaper Wrapper to Germany with ADDED ½d Wrapper cut-out!

Never seen this use before and superb condition for over 120 years old – a complete and undamaged used wrapper.

BRITISH EMPIRE was good for the ½d rate, but for GERMANY the rate was 1d.

So someone cut up another wrapper’s stamp impression, and ILLEGALLY used that cut out to make it up to 1d rate.

Superb piece, and a lovely clear, crisp Melbourne Duplex of April 12, 1892. Stock 732HW

Cut-outs on Victoria newspaper wrappers are very scarce. To date I have managed to obtain only 3 items.

When I last wrote in January about the Newspaper Wrapper Catalogue, I said there there were some 20 or 30 pages left to do. That was, in retrospect, an huge underestimate, 200 to 300 pages would have been a lot better estimate.

As of today the catalogue has 504 pages and is now lot closer to the finish. I think I can see "some light in the tunnel".

It's been a long time since I posted an update on the newspaper wrapper catalogue.

Work on the catalogue has not stopped and has reached 880 pages, which means it will need to be in two volumes.

I have given up trying to guess how many pages are left to do, so the next post will be when it's finished, which shouldn't be that long.

Took a look at the web site and was suitably impressed with the range of material covered.

Has there been any further consideration to the .pdf of the catalogue, or will it remain web based?

Still working on the catalogue!

It's looking like it will need to be in 3 volumes and it will only be available as a printed copy. As of today the GB section is 345 pages and the rest of the world is 745 pages.

So perhaps
Vol 1 GB
Vol 2 British Commonwealth
Vol 3 The rest

Are you envisioning individual volumes being available?

The rest would be about double the size of the British Commonwealth.

So the plan is to have GB in 1 volume and the rest of the world in 2 volumes. The GB will be available separate from the 2 volumes Rest of the World.

Here is my list. Some of them you may already know but most of them should be new based on your web site.

Norma Special Catalogue 2013, Finland (Finland)

LAPE Special Stamp Catalogue 2012, Finland (part 1, Finland including Russian wrappers used in Finland)

Michel Schweiz/Liechtenstein-Spezial 2008 (Switzerland)

Michel Österreich-Spezial 2012 (Austria and areas)

I left out from this list Michel stationery catalogues for Europe, Yvert for France, Scott for USA, Unitrade for Canada and Sakura for Japan. If you would need those, I can provide details.

My list of books on the web is way out of date, it was last updated in 2011 !

Two of the catalogues, Norma and LAPE, are new to me. Will have an opportunity to have a look at copies of them in about 3 weeks time.

The listing is very short, so I think I can post it here. Unlike I mentioned earlier, also Norma lists Russian wrappers used in Finland.

NB! Russian wrapper used in Finland have only 'used' value as mint ones can be just normal Russian wrappers with no connection to Finland.

How did this one work with no address? I can only assume the address was on the newspaper itself. It has been used as flap is stuck down.

Re: My Catalogue of Postal Stationery Newspaper Wrappers

The Philatelic Record in December 1900 reported as follows

“SPECIMEN STAMPS. A set of Victorian Postage and Postage-due Stamps of all denominations, from ½d to 20s, including Post Cards, Stamped Envelopes and Newspaper wrappers, may be purchased for £1. The full set, from ½d to £100, may be obtained for £5. Applications to be made to the Comptroller of Stamps. The stamps will be cancelled either by light postmark, or by being marked ‘Specimen’, as the purchaser may desire.”

In addition wrappers with a Melbourne CTO dated 26 Apr 1901 were supplied as specimens to the UPU.
