In addition, looking at http://marcophilie.org/x/x-1863-i.html the CDS is a Type 17 showing District Offices (bureaux de quartier )(1863 first year of use). That is if I am interpreting correctly!


The lozenge Paris star is, I think, #30 like below

from
http://marcophilie.org/x/x-1863-i.html

Numbers 1 to 40 were used in 1863.

Common cancel lozenge with a letter here a "J" (train lines - ambulant) instead of numbers Sc#14 :

Regards.

Billys.

That is a very nice pair, I`m sure it`s not common
In Michel it`s nr. 10, and gives two shades (same CV for used):
-a `hell bis dunkelolivgrün
-b `bronzeoliv`
Maybe Yvert gives more colours (shades)? Billys, do you happen to know which colour is your`s?
I have only one, not very sound margins (at least left side is large enough), but cannot decide which shade.

Hi Wadmalatz,

For shades I use Dallay catalogue, Yvert is too limited in descriptions.
Yours seems to be light Olive, mine is olive.
You have 2 other possible shades, bronze (dark olive) and "mordoré" (must be more yellow or golden shade).
Yours is cancelled with lozenge dots, that is not common, lozenge was used for higher currencies.

Regards.

Billys.

Thanks Billys.
I`ll need a magnifying glass for the early CDS (what I have are fade), but till then one of my favourite (already posted here somewhere), a slogan cancel



`Fumez les cigarettes Celtitiques`. It seems there are no more manufactured.

Hello,

Here are other cancels from France :

The mark " Après le départ" = "after the departure" was used on covers remitted after the last levy :



On the excellent reference site : http://marcophilie.org/x/x-rec-i.html (please scroll in half left page)

Some lozenge of dots with small numbers are rare, "2640" is used in small village like this one on Sc#14 from "REIGNAC-DE-BLAYE" :


List of all small numbers here ; http://marcophilie.org/b0.html

Another lozenge on Sc#14 but with big numbers, uncommon because it's a late usage of this stamp (lozenge with big numbers must be on perf stamps):



Here are small dots on Sc#15 :



More informations here : http://marcophilie.org/grille-de-pe...ans-fin.html

Here is a "étoile muette" = mute star :



More informations are here : http://marcophilie.org/x/x-eto-i.html


I return later with other cancels.

Regards.

Billys.

Hi Puzzler,
The cancel you showed earlier with number 30 is a 'Paris star'.
The lozenge is a rhomboid shape like a sideways diamond.

Thanks AnthonyUK, my mistake. I was looking at too many cancels at once I think.

Hi all,

Always about dotted stars, higher numbers are the rarest ones like this number 38 on Sc#53 (only one year of existence for this post office of Paris) :



My preferred reference site : http://marcophilie.org/losange-etoile-38.html

Another dotted star with number 1, but this one was used later on SC#78 for new year cancels :



Pearled CDS was used for small villages are highly sought, here "Colombières") :



Reference here : http://marcophilie.org/x/x-cpn2cer-i.html

Pearled CDS also on SC#78 :



More informations here : http://marcophilie.org/x/x-cpncer-i.html

To be continued later ...

Regards.

Billys.

Hello everyone,

Here is a rare cancel on Sc#60.
Octagonal "paquebot" boat cancel from "Buenos Aires" line N°2.



Reference is here : http://marcophilie.org/tad-15-octogonal.html

Another one, much more usual, is a periodic (newspaper) cancel on Sc#86.
The newspaper was printed after the apposition of the stamp, text is always different :



Now a blue cancel on Sc#92, it's an ambulant cancel (used on train travel between city of expedition and destination):



Reference site is here : http://marcophilie.org/tad-convoyeu...es-1877.html

Same one but in black,"LES SALINS-D'HYERES A TOULON" on Sc#104 :



The last one for today is a postman cancel on Sc#92, created on 1939 and still on use in 1892 !! :



References are here : http://marcophilie.org/mqp-marque-o...hiffres.html

If still interested, I will be loading tomorrow other nice French cancels on old stamps.

Regards.

Billys.

More, please!

And as long as we have some new posters, here is a marking that went unidentified last year...anyone?




The stamp seems to have gone unmarked except for this...

And just for fun, as long as I'm reloading, here is a Luneville ondule cancel...
