Not focused on cancellations, but some attractive French material in the first sixty-odd pages of the current Yvert sales catalogue

Was this cancel applied in a quay-side facility in the French port prior to departure - onboard a mail steamer enroute from France to Italy - or upon arrival in the Italian port of call?
For 99,9 % ,it's onboard à steamer From France to italy . Sometime and rarely you can find a french post departure cancellation if its a coopérative way with the french post and the steamer compagnie . (right and same Time to go )

I said there is an another mistake in previous post , its about the pré canceled , but its so difficult to explain with the right words , that I need Time to translate exactly what it has to be ( ou un parfait bilingue .)

Thanks Derwins - I thought so, good to have it confirmed

It's easy to tell you are deep into French postmarks - collecting the different ambulant and Paris Stars etc. May I ask if you also collect different PC or GC postmarks?

Maybe one day ... But collecting Pc and GC is something still endless , (dont Forget the
Pc From GC Too ) ...
I start my collection two years ago. I start numbers alter numbers..From 1849 to 1988 ...(after , french stamps looks Like panini stikers ,or collecting football pictures and loose her soul )
Then I Start collecting " les usages courant" , the usual séries ..stamps that we're pasting without looking them .
And because of historic aspect , all about the 1870/1871 war , and also ww2 résistance and libération stamps.

Ha ha, yes - it might seem so. I started collecting them a few years back, and have only about 600 different, so still missing another approx 9500. However - I have no intention of completion, that's probably impossible anyway. My goal is the enjoyment - and the enjoyment is at its best with the combination of beautiful classic French stamps and interesting postmarks. Highly recommended

- Unfortunately.... and same goes for so many other countries as well.

Good to see you are into "les usages courant". Your are in good company - you will find that many folks in here look at these 'workhorses' in closest details. And the cancellations on them

I'm looking for info on this cancel. It looks like "2046 D". I've seen other numeral cancels with a smaller letter underneath, and I've been wondering what the letter signifies. Any info is appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Mount-this,

These letters were used to distinguish different post offices in the same town.

This one is from the Place St Martin office in Lille.

Here's a list from the French Wikipedia:

Ah .. what a fun thread! I learned a quite a bit reading through these pages.

Let me add a few of mine:

A postcard sent to Israel from a French Post Office in the Ottoman Empire (Constantinople) - 1891:




Ardenne Cancel - 1894:




A postcard from Turkey to the USA using a French "Levant" stamp (French Post Office in the Ottoman Empire) - 1909:




A telegram - 1889:



Enjoy!

My camera is buggered and I must reset it, but this picture from the web shows the design on my French stamp, however, my stamp is imperf with a different postmark, 2 (cent mark) "Postes" at the bottom and tan like the 4 c in the picture.

This is the "Blanc" type. The examples in the link are pre-cancels. Are you sure that yours isn't a cut-out from postal stationery?

Way back on page 1, AnthonyUK showed an example with the explanation, "Some newspapers had a stamp on the paper before printing, so became overprinted with the news." I picked up a small packet and did a quick search to find this interesting piece of information. Here are the examples in that packet.

Hello!

Here some french cancels on classic brazilian stamps.
We call it an accidental cancel. Very rare!
