I have a number of 'stamps' and labels issued by postage stamp dealers and traders in the UK over the years and would be interested in seeing what else exists on this theme.

To start the ball rolling I have scanned what might be considered to perhaps be the 'classic' example - the set of 100 labels, printed by Perkins Bacon & Co Ltd for Stanley Gibbons of London to provide a comparison guide to stamp collectors for stamp printing colour variations, with the names for these as used in catalogues. Most modern colour charts/cards display solid blocks of colour whereas most stamps printed do not. I still find these labels helpful today and they can fetch quite high prices when they occasionally appear on Ebay and the like.

The 'stamps', all perforated and gummed, were issued on a folded card mount (printed by Harrison & Sons Ltd) and all show the same design of a standing figure of Britannia, holding spear and shield, with the inscription 'STANLEY GIBBONS LTD 391 STRAND LONDON WC2' and 'COLOUR CHART'. I am not sure of the date but from the prices cited for other Gibbons products I would think they were produced in the 1930s or 1950s (unlikely to be during the WW1 or WW2 years).

If there is any interest, I will post some other items and would be pleased to see what others might have. Chris Wren

Chris,
there is a subtle difference implied by
"produced by stamp dealers"
and
"produced by stamp printers"

I have many labels of the latter, but none by dealers that I can recall.
If you want printers then I'll add to the thread.

Here is a label produced by Philatelic Historian and Oddities dealer Victor Short.



Also produced in at least one other colour.
There are more including his cute renditions of the Ideal Stamp and the Manchester War fund labels.
I'll show some later along with a anice cover and a letterhead.

1971 Strike Post labels by dealers Bridger & Kay, who ran an actual Postal Courier service.

I have more but here are 2 examples:





The latter is missing Blue text, quite scarce.

Here is former partner Allan Leverson at Philatex Extra, May 2010 part of the Festival of Stamps. He holds a large stock of the remanders of these issues and showed me some nice pieces !

The Tatham Stamp Company of Springfield, Massachsetts produced their own advertising Cindrella based on the 1912 KGV 'Ideal' Stamp.
I do not have an example, sadly.
They also produced 'Tasco' Booklets containing Confederate Facsimiles......



Can't find the booklet scan but it's here somewhere !

British Stamp Dealers Rushstamps was founded by Allan Grant in 1958.
Mr.Grant was also heavily involved in the Strike Mail saga and I'll show some later.
Rushstamps are also responsible for Philatelic Collars and an abundance of 'Philatelic' Overprints on GB and other stamps.

Lovely things Londonbus - as ever! To answer Rod and to clarify, I am really looking for things produced by (or for) stamp dealers, regardless who actually printed them. They can be advertising labels (general or specific), event publicising labels, fun things or whatever. Ideally round about postage stamp size, gummed and maybe perforated; if used on an envelope or similar, then even better!

There are many cinderellas, labels, essays, etc that have been done by printers for their own advertising or other purposes but, as with any printing company, they will print anything a customer wants and is prepared to pay for.

Here is another Tatham Stamp & Coin Co label applied to the 1937 Coronation cinderella envelope - a cinderella for a cinderella - or is that a cinderella squared? Chris Wren

Here's one to go with Mr. Bus's collection of Springfield Tasco Confederate facsimile label countfeit collectible pieces.



My first confederate purchase turned out to be an early Springfield label, before he was forced to stamp the backs "FACSIMILE".

I'll probably still hunt down the rest of the 'collection' one day.

I ran into these coupons in a shoebox lot I got recently.

I think they are from the early 1970's(?).

I had Littleton approvals as a kid, but I was strictly a small-change buyer; I never earned any coupons. I did earn some of those "have you forgotten?" messages. Long gone though.
