The things that catch you out.
I was sorting a huge bunch of France, and this lady was face down,
and I saw what I thought was a watermark.
France does not use watermarks!
So I go Googling before even turning the stamp over.
Ink bleed from a Slogan Postmark ! Sheesh.
Whilst on the subject of Watermarks
I could tell you the 5c Ceres of France has a "LACROIX" watermark on some stamps and is very hard to find

Has anyone an image of that Watermark?
PS: What I thought was a Wmk Coconut palm is possibly a Poinsettia Slogan (Christmas)
