The difference in ascribed/described colors may be a matter of papers. Your imperforate labels look to be printed on a more yellowish paper, while my perforated ones are on a light gray paper.

Has anyone seen an "inverted swan" variety before?

This label is reportedly the only known copy. It isn't listed in Fields-Picklo, and "red wing philatelic" currently gets zero Google results.

By any chance, does anyone have another copy?

These two sheetlets feature Cinderellas based on the popular West German "Buildings" series of 1948-51. They were produced to advertise the Philatelia '81 Stamp Show in Frankfurt A.M. on 14-18 November of that year. Colorful yellow, red, and black perforated labels featuring the show logo were also produced.

The "black print" sheetlet was actually printed at the show on a type high press.

A new catalog that illustrates and values these philatelic exhibition labels is now available.

The Polonus Philatelic Society overprinted 1,000 mark Polish bank notes in the margins, for their January 1940 show. It was their first show.

This is one of the rarest philatelic exhibition labels, as reportedly only 69 copies were distributed.

The Shadyside Philatelic Society reportedly issued just 20 copies of their 1938 label, showing a facsimile of a Uganda typewritten stamp.

Has anyone ever seen one of these before?

No, but thank you James. You just took me back to junior high school. The English tests are being passed out and everybody is smelling the papers to get a good whiff of the mimeograph chemicals.

The Charlotte Philatelic Society handmade tiny little envelopes with a bisected stamp, and hand drew all of the text.

Probably not too many of these that still exist?

I just picked up a couple of items today. The first is a full sheet of one of the 1932 National Philatelic Exhibition items from the APS Convention. There have been individuals displayed earlier in this thread, but I didn't an entire sheet shown. There is some perf separation. I also have the Black / yellow version, but separated and heavily faded. (Not shown.)


The second is from Wallis et Futuna. 1937 Arts and Technology.

Another very uncommon or rare label is from the Norwalk High School Stamp Club.

They were in Connecticut.

The red coloring was done by hand.
