Thanks BK
They must be unofficials as they are not listed in Gibbons.

The 1914 "Flag" issues of Epirus
Lithography by Aspiotis Freres, Corfu.....

They are an unofficial local issue known as the Moschopolis issue, according to the Hellas cataogue. Issued 1914, perf 14.5. The 1 lepta brown is valued 1 euro mint, the 5 lepta green the same.
Hope this helps!

Thanks David,
yes it helps, but also confuses,

I have this following stamp as part of the Moschopolis issue

so were there two sets?
or are both stamps/labels from the same set?

Cheers

Same set, yours is one of the (drachma) higher values. According to Hellas the 3 drachma green-grey and red-brown is 5 euros mint.

Aaaaargh!

I had focussed on the "pillared" issue,
not the others.
I usually print others in the set as "facsimiles"
to mount on the page, not this time,
completely lost recall

Thanks for bringing that to my attention...I think

Hi Rodney,

It's nice to see your quote from my earlier post set out so neatly above.

I was sitting here reading it (and agreeing with it! ) until I realised they were my words.

The 2011 Scott Classic Specialized catalogue illustrates the (1914) designs, then dismisses them with:
"Stamps of the following designs were not regularly issued for postal purposes in the opinion of the editors"
