Here is a charity label for American Mission to Lepers. This looks to be from the 1940's or '50s.

On my internet search, I wasn't able to determine if this is the same organization as American Leprosy Missions, or if it is affiliated with Mission to Lepers (Ireland).

This large (46mm x 66mm) cinderella of Germany publicizes the 900th anniversary celebration of the town of Amberg, in eastern Bavaria. A miner with pick and lantern is shown between old and new town views. The brown color may have been symbolically used to indicate a racist, or anti-semitic "new order."

The label is typical of many third reich stamps and cinderellas in that it employs a modernized Gothic blackletter font for the lettering, as well as strong side lighting for the subject. It is a little unusual that the eagle and swastika image is hidden behind the Amberg town name.

From Wikipedia, "Jews settled in Amberg before 1294, when the first documentation can be found. Nevertheless, in 1347, six families received permission to settle in Amberg and twenty years after, in 1367, a Yeshivah was opened in it, though the Jewish community was expelled from Amberg in 1403. Upon the expulsion, the synagogue was annexed to the nearby church. Twelve Jews remained in town in 1942."

The only cinderella I have for the 1901 Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo. I got it to display in my album with the Scott 3505 sheet. I was partial to it as I once lived near Buffalo.

Those are very odd "deckle edge" die cuts on the Astorga label. Can't remember ever having seen this on a stamp or cinderella before.

Are they homemade, or was the label produced with them?

It was not home-made. I've more than 30 cinderellas with two or four edges like this. In my view, they were issued on 1928/31, judging by the buildings and the text.

Thanks Cursus. It is an interesting concept.

Of course, when they are die cut vertically or horizontally, they can be strips. But when they are die cut on all four sides, such as the POBLET label, accounting for them would seem to be a problem...if you are the producer/seller.
