Hello,
Being a collector of French stamps I really appreciate your posts, rod222 Thank you.
Initially I identified the 2 stamps, 1929 "Port de la Rochelle" as type III.
On a closer look I noticed that the colors differ and that the lines breaks from the figure "0" (even if they are not identical to those in the catalog) can lead to the conclusion that the MNH stamp is of type II.
I need your advice and experience to identify this stamp.
Thanks

Hello vayolene,

Thank you very much for your information.

Your useful link on pneumatic mail included the interesting sentence,

Le tarif est de 50 centimes pour les cartes ouvertes et de 75 centimes pour les cartes fermées (cartes-lettres)

which fits Rod's 75c example nicely.

Were similar cartes-lettres also issued for telegrams?

Thanks Vayolene for those images.

It seems strange to have a telegraph letter card.


Hi Nigel,
Indeed, I had it for years under "Telegraph" in my folders.
Couldn't find a catalogue for them.

I am flattered by your suggestion, alas, I am only a student of France.
I'll do my best to research, but would defer to Vayolene, or Perf12 for advice there.

The Pneumatic Posts of Paris.
FYI
I have this book in *.pdf form
No idea from whence it came.
https://pneumatic.tube/book-the-pne...ost-of-paris

I bid on a Pneumatic Form some years ago, with a suggested CV of $5,000
I was outbid, and sold for $240 if memory serves.

Nigel,

Cupram. Opinion.
If they were my stamps, I would have
1. Mint is Type ll
2. Used is Type lll
Neither can be Type l

Both stamps look to me to be Ultramarine, not pale or deep.

PS: I have 3 x Perfin AG, never been able to identify

I. - The E of POSTS shows a small vertical line at the top right.
II. - No vertical Line E of POSTS. The elongated oval inside the number zero is open at the bottom and the framing net of the same number is broken at the bottom.
III. - No vertical line at the E of POSTS. The inner oval of the zero is closed at the bottom and the net surrounding this figure is intact.

Hello rod222,

Thanks for your opinion.
I found the meaning for AG even on "stampboards" There are many variations for A (right side) and the number of perforations for G (15 or 16)

Are any members able to explain the print query here please.
Sc#387 1939 (1944)
The poor print looks like Iris has had botox on her lips.

The Double Carrick Bend.
The Carrick bend, also known as the Sailor's breastplate, is a knot used for joining two lines. It is particularly appropriate for very heavy rope or cable that is too large and stiff to be easily formed into other common bends. It will not jam even after carrying a significant load or being soaked with water.
