If the stamp had tab then it might be worth $5-$10. But without tab, considerably less.
I would guess it might fetch a couple of dollars if someone collected the Interim period stamps.....just for the novelty value.

Hi Snowy

Yes, they are tabbed stamps, showing Israel's first President, Chaim Weizmann.
In the Carmel catalogue [Israel] it is valued at $25. So I'd say $6-$10 to an Israel collector. Registered, so maybe a bit more dependiong on condition of course.

Just a word of warning about "Tabs'. On some earlier issues, some of the Tabs had selvedge like the ones on your cover. Without this selvedge stamps are deemed to have 'Part' or 'Half' Tabs. As you can see, some issues of more than one stamps have different size selvedge!

I would say most of the issues up to 1960 had selvedge, less during the sixties. The last stamp to have both Tab and Selvedge was the 1975 Hadassa hospital issue [But I stand corrected ].

Most of the early coin issues did not have selvedge. Indeed the only stamp of the first set of Israel stamps to have selvedge was the 1000 Mils high value, still the most sought after Israel stamp.

It's been a while since I added to this thread, so while my back is holding up and I have more movement, here are some additions to the tale......

First up is a small sheet of JNF advertising labels.



Next one is a one-stamp sheet with tab issued by the JNF in 1978. Designed by Ruth Levin on the subject of Ecology, close to the Organization's heart.



Last but not least, for now, is a sheetlet of 25 JNF labels out of the New York Branch Office showing Zionist Personalities. The sheet was issued to celebrate the 25th Year of Independence in 1972.
In Blue and Purple, no margins. Perf 12.



More to come.....

Michael, since you've reopened this thread, maybe you can ID these labels that came in the package you sent me recently.

This one says Marianne Von Hugo down the right side.



You also sent the 10 and 80 denomination of this one.



Similar to above, but appears older.



One of two nice sheets of these.



And I just posted this sheet on the souvenir sheet thread, but I'll post it here as well. Also Jewish National Fund? I see the KKL initials.



My apologies if I've posted some you had just scanned. But you got my curiosity going!

james,

The first one will need some research but I do believe, although I did not notice it before, that I know this Marianne !! So it could well be a 'homemade' stamp used om mail or sent to friends in Israel. It has a propaganda slant to it.
The label shows Palestinian School children in the Old City of Jerusalem in their school uniforms. It is most likely a picture she had taken during one of her many visits.
The Hebrew reads 'To Life' !
The next two are general revenue stamps [5 and 100 agorot]. These are often found overprinted for use in Palestinian or other areas. Some are scarce, even rare.
The next one is from the 2004 National Stamp Exhibition and the last is indeed a JNF/KKL label sheet from 1975.

Here's an unusual Judaica item !!





Spot the typo ?

Londonbus1...playing silly beggars !

Of course. German propaganda stamp. Star of David on top of crown and hammer and sickle in rose at left. Suggesting of course that King George and the whole war were at the mercy of the Jews and Commies.
Been lusting after some of those since I saw a picture of one as a kiddie stamp collector. Some day. Some day!

Back on May 8,2011 I posted :



Quote:
Many years ago in the late fifties while walking to school with
a buddy who was also a collector we noticed a box at the curb
for garbage pick up which had stamps it.
Mostly Israelis and some labels which I believe were also
from the Jewish National Fund. We both grabbed some.

I don't know what happened to mine though. I wasn't that much interested
in labels then but wish now I had kept them.



Well 4 years later I finally found a couple of them.

Somehow the first one reminds me more of Stonehenge than
a Canadian forest.



Anyone here read Hebrew ?

I was on holiday when the previous post went up and it someone slipped my glance !

The bottom JNF Label commemorates the 3rd Maccabiah, the Jewish 'Olympics' held in Ramat Gan in Sept-Oct 1950. Exists also in Blue and Brown.
Unused stocks of this issue were overprinted in Black and red to commemorate the lives lost at the 1972 Munich Olympic massacre.

I will look up the Canadian label later in my catalogue. I have never seen it before.

A video introduction to JNF/KKL Cinderellas by the Rocky Mountain Philatelic Library.

http://www.rmpldenver.org/catalog/videos.html

I've got quibbles with the text - nothing new there, eh? - but this 10-minute video sets a pretty high bar for what can be done by talented amateurs on a budget.

Cheers,
