There doesn't appear to be a specific topic for postage dues.
I have been sorting through some (former) French colonies and found some to start off with.

Nice stuff Anthony.

The 4c Cameroun has what looks like the engraver's name lower right
even though the stamp was typographed.
Typography is more or less the opposite of recess engraving but
since the paltes plates are in relief the master die still has to be engraved.

Good article here in Linn's

I have overspent my download limit,
I am now on dial up speed (groan)
Now I know how Puzzler feels with large scans!

That Cameroon image is quite prophetic,
after the recent Queensland floods,
I heard a woman on the news say, amid tears,
"I'll never chop another tree down in my life"

In 2008 when Haiti had heavy flooding and mudslides many deaths could
have been prevented if they hadn't for the last few decades
denuded large areas of any kind of vegetation in the hunt
for fire wood.

Meanwhile the Dominican Republic which shares the island with
Haiti came off lightly mainly because they have large areas of
forest and scrub land. At least that's what it looks like when
flying over it on the way to Punta Cana.
Wish I was there now.

Perhaps mourning the death of King Edward VII? The photo came from an Oct 1910 journal (and may well have been some weeks / months old), KEVII passed away in May 1910. Probably a prescribed situation, all civil service employees would have been directed to wear mourning for some period of time.

You are a sharp customer, Ryan :)
well done.
I'd love to have been a fly on the wall there
just to see what he had on all those cancelling hammers in evidence.
And a weird set of scales to boot.

Litho: would it not be terribly humid there at the mo?
all your stamps would curl :(

I have to make a confession Rod.

During all the times we've been there stamps were the least thing
on my mind.

There were many other more pleasurable distractions.

The above example of a French postage due stamp prompts me to post this cover. Does anyone know a plausible reason behind postage due stamps being used as the primary postage on such an item? Did it have something to do with the wartime effort and the cover relating to a soldier or officer's mail?



Does anyone know what the postal marking of a "T" within a triangle was supposed to represent?

I've always been a bit puzzled by this cover, so any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks.

In the majority of countries T = tax =taxe = postage due
As was the blank triangle for cancelling the dues stamps

Example from Belgium:

Western Australia has no less than 8 pages of
"T" markings for postage dues.

Some should interest Puzzler (Sexagons)

I am still finding new ones as late as 1980




Ethiopia Postage Dues

The high value from an Albanian set of four, 1922



...and one from Croatia



Looking at this World War II era stamp reminded me of the Croatian feldpost stamps. I'll put them in another thread to keep this one on track.

Not conversant with "sous officers"
Maybe, the sender had written "free... services mail"
then it has been adjudged as requiring postage?
