Where could I find good information about these? I have a massive WWII collection and a massive Disney collection so I figured these would be a good fit. If anyone has some I would like to see them.

The Disney War Insignia stamps were manufactured during WWII, by a number of different newspapers (San Francisco Chronicle is one of them). As far as I know, there were at least 3 booklets with descriptions and spaces to mount 50 different stamps each, but there may have been more. They are definitely collectable, but not scarce. I will see if I have any to scan - not sure.

Oh, cool! Yes, these are the ones I am familiar with. Notice that they are numbered. #1-50 are in the first book, #51-100 and #101-150 are in books 2 and 3 that were published by the newspapers.

Not Disney, but in a similar vein.

"Combat Insignia" Stamps produced by Robert Lash Robbins (Postamp Publishing Company / Poster Stamp Publishing Company) of Chicago, IL exist in 6 volumes. I am having a hard time finding complete sets of Volume 4 and 6, as well as more of these stamps pasted on covers and mailed 1942-1945, especially if they are on 1942-1945 issued FDC's. Here is the complete, as originally issued, intact sheet of the Volume 1, Series 2 (aka Volume 5) stamps displayed by stampfan9 at:

Specially printed price stamps -- I have scans for #21, #24, #25, #31, #33, #36, #38, #41, #46. Wanted: scans of any others.

So cool, PostalCardCachet!

I have the first three books, and a FCD with one applied. Always have loved these!

These are the only First Day Covers I have seen with any of these stamps. To my knowledge, Robert Lash Robbins did not produce any cachets, so I don't know who created the borders around these stamps.
