Hello!
I would like this image as my avatar, if possible (living in the same region- it's great we once had a local post)





Thanks a lot!

Interesting,
Is there a difference with "local post" and "private post" ?
I note Michel uses Private with her Germany.
I wonder the correct verbiage when exhibiting?

Michel Deutschland Spezial also uses `lokalausgabe` or `Lokalpost`. `Lokalpost` in Poland using stamps (1914-18) Sosnowice, Zawiercie. During the inflation, lack of stamps led to `Lokalausgaben` in Altenburg, Appelwerder,Barmen,...Kulmbach, ...Tutz, etc. But these postoffices were using not stamps, but `Gebuhrenzettel` - small signed and cancelled pieces of paper. I think (hmmm?!?*&?) that local post means that lack of stamps led local post offices to issue stamps, and these were valid everywhere. Private post is when the post office is a private company, and perhaps the stamps they issue and use are only valid for them..?.. In fact I don`t know.:(. Lundy (puffin) stamps for example are only valid on their island, no? What are they, local, or private?

I considerd Lundy as "local"...wrong

Chapter and verse from "Ask Phil"

PRIVATE:

Private postage: 1: nondenominated stamps with inscription "Postage Paid" valid for
postage within the Australia and sold by some hotels in Australia for convenience of
guests. 2: stamps issued by a government for use of private individuals, usually for
large mailings or for mail deemed to be of great benefit to the public; Spain 1869 and
1881 for pamphlet to schools, Portugal rifle club. 3: hotel stamps, Lundy stamps.
Private Post office: inscription on US local posts issued 1864 in San Francisco for a
city mail service.
Privatganzsache: (Ger.) private postal stationery.
Privat-Stadtbrief-Beförderung: local post, Erfurt, Germany, 1888-95.
Privat-Stadt-Brief-Verkehr: Fürth, Germany local post, 1896-1900.
Privat-Stadt-Post: local post, Essen, Germany, 1887-88.
Private Post Office: U. S. local post, envelopes, San Francisco, Calif. 1864.
Private Die Proprietary Stamps: issued in 1862 to raise funds for the Civil War, the
stamps paid the U. S. revenue tax on products of private firms; manufacturers were
permitted to have the dies engraved and plates made for their exclusive use; the tax
was repealed effective July 1, 1883.
Private Supplemental Posts: carried mail to and from post offices where government
service was erratic or non-existent.
Privatepost: Sweden, discount postage

LOCAL POST
do not register a definitive explanation
mainly lists "private local posts" of Germany, Denmark etc.
including strike mail
