Interesting thread here.

Thanks also to those who added the different links as well. They are really full of useful information for the serious French postal history collector.

Even though I do not collect France or the postal history of it per se, I know I have French stamps with some of these old cancellations on them.

Here is an image I saved off of Delcampe with air usage in 1936 to Argentina. The price went too high for me.

So the dotted hexes were for rural locations?
Thank you for the link.
Time to relearn some French!

I do not know a lot about them, I just collect what looks good to me.

I think many others here know. That link is fascinating indeed. I could spend hours on there.

fifia, your cancel is actually a precancel. Yvert lists two types, but I always have to look them up...

The more recent French pre-cancels have Affranch ts on them which is short for affranchissement.

An earlier version

A couple more cancellations.
One from 1985 and in 1902.

Yes this an interesting thread even though I'm not really
into French stamps.

I do have this cover though from 1863 with 3 different postmarks.





I'm not sure about the number. Is it 30 ?



Except for Paris and the date, I can't make out the rest.

The last one may be a TPO for a Paris to Givet train trip.

The place name looks like
PETITE-RUE-DU PAC
to me but Google doesn't bring that up. Maybe too old, renamed, changed, built over?

I concur on Rue du Bac.
You can just see the starting of the lower arm on the B.

On French Wikipedia, under Rue Dupin, I found, and Google translated (with errors) to:

Quote:
History

Cette voie existait en 1625. This way there in 1625. Précédemment nommée petite rue du Bac ; antérieurement, rue du Petit Bac et plus anciennement, rue du Baril Neuf. Formerly known as small rue du Bac, previously, rue du Petit Bac and oldest, rue du Baril Nine.



Quote:
Dupin Street is a street located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris .

Thanks Cjd and Puzzler for that fine detective work.

Perhaps I should call you guys Inspector Clouseau and Commissaire
Maigret.

Here we are on the way to the next stamp bourse in Paris:


There is a book with the Post Office on Dupin Street in the title (not sure if it about the actual Post Office though?):
