Have this as part of my collection. Question: Is this a Cinderella or not. A little unusual with both a mono and coloured version of the plane. Appreciate any input on this.

Even though it has some signs of poor storage at some point in it's life, it is still a delightful Cinderella item. I have never seen the item before but reading the text it looks like it came together with a greeting card or the like.
I have also never seen a Pair of stamps joined, one in original colour and one a Blackprint.

Lovely.

Apparently it was part of a series of poster stamps:



Take a look at the bottom of this closed eBay listing:

Thanks Londonbus and wt1. That's very helpful and interesting. Didn't know any of this, good to have this background information. Interesting too that it is part of a set. Mind naturally asks the question, 'how many in the set?' Have the info to dig a little deeper now when time permits.
