A couple of NAACP sheets that I have, they don't identify the year, I think they're from the 1980's.

Some of my stamp club colleagues look askance at my poster stamp/cinderella collection as things that are all of low value. Not all of them - I picked up this item for effectively $0.50 as part of a large collection of exhibition stamps. A similar one sold for $325 at a Corinphila auction 5 years ago.

Stampdoc - one of the interesting things I've noticed about poster stamps is the wildly varying prices on them, although I have never seen a disparity like that. Most stamp collectors see these as worthless, so it takes a specialist to know the rarity of them.

I picked up a number of Ludwig Hohlwein poster stamps at a show for $1 apiece last year. The seller said "those are nice looking but they're not worth anything", and I just said "uh huh" and bought the whole lot. He's right in that they're nice looking!

I risked $100 on a set 2 days ago, knocked down to me at $29
12 bidders if I recall.

I've spent $82 on a cinderella that isn't even nice-looking.

It's an example of the "international money" (mon bevünetik in Volapük) that was produced by Yang Yen-Nung, a tea merchant and Volapükist in Amoy (now Xiamen), China, in the mid-1890s.

Fascinating.
Just knowing it existed is an amazement.

rod - yep, I did move on... after I relieved him of those stamps. :) He also said "they're some sort of weird advertising labels". His ignorance was good for me though!

Another recent addition - I really like the image for this "Fortnight of Fish" event sponsored by the French Merchant Marine Ministry

Follow-up to "Recent addition to my WWII US military insignia collection:" by stampfan9.

"Combat Insignia" Stamps produced by Robert Lash Robbins (Postamp Publishing Company / Poster Stamp Publishing Company) of Chicago, IL exist in 6 volumes. I am having a hard time finding complete sets of Volume 4 and 6, as well as more of these stamps pasted on covers and mailed 1942-1945, especially if they are on 1942-1945 issued FDC's. Here is the complete, as originally issued, intact sheet of the Volume 1, Series 2 (aka Volume 5) stamps displayed by stampfan9:





Specially printed price stamps -- I have scans for #21, #24, #25, #31, #33, #36, #38, #41, #46. Wanted: scans of any others.



For more "Combat Insignia" Stamps, see my new pages:

For many more WW II Patriotics, see:

That is interesting. They provide an icon to "email poster" but then they don't allow you to do that. So, what do I do now, repost the same post at "Disney Combat Insignia Stamps" because no one else will see it here? I did not know about that related topic until now.

As far as I know, one cannot email the poster until 50 posts are made.

No problem, when you have 50, just post a link over there to your posts.
No need to repost images.

Let's see now, I have made 10 posts since 12-28-2018. So according to the Date Calculator page, that is 10 posts every 1268 days. At this rate my 50th post will be made on 5-07-2036, when I will be 94 years old, assuming I am still alive. Not until then will I be able to post a link from "Disney Combat Insignia Stamps" back to my post here in "Let's See Your Cinderellas!"?
