This card commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Gotha airmail flight. It was mailed to me by my trading partner in Gotha, Germany (DDR). Have not seen another of the commemorative Cinderella.

I found all these in among my Spanish stamps. I presume all are Spanish cinerellas - does anyone know anything about them?

On second row those are charity stamps.
They were issued in 1944/45 to raise funds for the benefit of Orphaned Children of Telegraph Workers.
They exist with or without overprint
(Ceuta and Melilla are two spanish towns in Morocco)

Thanks. So they're not cinderellas then. Were they additional stamps, or did they cover postage in their own right?

The 2nd item on the first row, is a cinderella, issued on the island of Mallorca around 1960 to promote turism. The 3rd and 4th items on the first row are cinderellas, issued by the fascist side (Franco's) of the 1936/39 war on the city of Lugo (Gaicia, NW of Spain).

Regarded as Cinderellas. Both likely forgeries based on paper type.

Found this item in an envelope of random stamps I had picked up several years ago - garage sale type of thing. Finally got around to getting into the envelope and found this interesting piece.

From what I could find on the internet: The UHAA was formed in May 1934, then in 1960 merged with the Horological Institute of America to form the American Watchmakers Institute.
So that would place this item as pre 1960.


Just sharing it because I found it interesting, but if anyone wants it, contact me.

At PIPEX last month, I picked up this wreck of a cover with two interesting fund raising labels on it.



The label at the upper right was sold to raise funds for the building of LZ-127, the Graf Zeppelin. More information on it can be found at http://goscf.com/t/53136. It was apparently issued in August of 1925.

The second label is a bit of a mystery to me. It seems to show a map of Upper Silesia (Oberschlesien in German) with two hands pulling parts of it away. Obviously referring to its partition following WW1. My question is: Who issued the label? A possible clue is that above the price of 5 Pfg. is found "B. H. SCH.". [The "B" make look more like a "D" in the scan, but a close look reveals it to be a "B".] I was thinking some group with a name such as "Bund Hilfe Schlesien", but cannot find any reference to such a group on the web.

Hi.
B is not for Bund. "Bund" means "Federation" and in 1925 Germany was not yet a Federation.
In numismatics "BH Schlesien" refers to old coins from Silesia (B.H. stands for Burkhart Hase)but it may be nothing but a coincidence

"Bund" could also be part of the name of some private organization. For example, there is the "Bund der Vertriebenen" https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bund_...Vertriebenen, an federation of organizations representing Germans expelled from lands lost to Germany after WW2.

I am certainly aware that the Bundesrepublik Deutschland did not come into existence until some time after WW2. [23 May 1949 according to Wikipedia.]
