Hi Blaamand, Hi Anthony.

I have been building a limestone wall, and I am completely knackered,
I just slept from 5 in the afternoon, till midnight, and now looking through bleary eyes.
Burning the midnight oil.


Quote:
Your 'Unknown Mutilated Stationery piece' is a cut down perforated item.


Sorry Anthony, it just cannot be, it is stiff paper, did they make newspaper wrappers with this issue?
Otherwise I am discombobulated with this piece.

(I keep meaning to buy a micrometer to measure paper thickness)

Anthony, what a beautiful page ! Top marks. (looks expensive too)
Certainly posts are welcome here, esp Steiner Pages

When recuperated, I am going to write to Webmaster of the French link
and seek the ML Y ambulante postmark that Blaamand suggested.
Shall post results...........

Anthony - - Beautiful - and good shades

Rod - Marseille-Lyon was only something that crossed my mind, don't be too optimistic. I don't even find 'ML Y' on the Marcophilie site. The closest match I can find is 'ML1°'. http://marcophilie.org/oblamb2.html - maybe we are fooled, maybe the suspected 'Y' is really a '1°'?

Thanks Rod and Blaamand. There's nothing expensive here for me as these a small selection of the items I've picked up over the years from auction lots and fairs.

There are definitely perf remainders on the bottom right so I assume it has been cut down. Perhaps you could try soaking it. I'm guessing it could be still attached to its backing.

Funny you mention the ML 1° as I had one of mine singled out to indentify.

Bless my soul. You are correct Watson.
Amazing, I completely missed that. Thanks.

Will take a closer look tomorrow.

Bumped...
Didn't see these yet...let me throw in my page




Can't seem to get my scans to look as good as yours, especially when doing full pages

I had to scan at 600 dpi in order to get it under 10MB in order to use the "Free Image Optimizer" in order to get it down to the required 200kb. I don't like using 3-party sites b/c of things like what happened with Photobucket. Any suggestions for better full-page scans?

Chris,
I am not a tecky,
I scan my whole scanner platen at 200 dpi.

I go into Picasa (remember that program?)
and crop it to the Steiner border, then save.

It usually turns out at about 256 Kb, I then run it through optimiser to 187Kb

Takes a few seconds.

Good Luck.

Rod, you know you can crop within the optimizer? Will save you the extra step of going through Picasa.

Ok, tried switching to my new HP printer/scanner and scanned at 200 dpi, then ran through the optimizer. Looks better, no?

Wow!

Looks fabulous....you nailed it Chris.

I have a scanner irritation, when I place an album page on the platen,
the frame must be a tad out of square.
My page image just leans to one side, I have to use Picasa to deskew.

But no big deal.

Derwins, Chris, thank you very much.

Translation:
Hello . The type Chaplain is a letter card clpp Paris for Paris. Ref 2600 at Y and T. Unfortunately cut out. 75c violet.
Champlain type: cut, card letter Paris for Paris.


For the vignette, the date corresponds to the fdc of y and t nº1782. "Postal museum", can be looked for on this side, it is a philatelic souvenir .It seems that the trunk post is the symbol of the postal museum.

Printed out for my Album . Thank you Derwins.

I shall also Post a private email I received, (Thanks Steve)
Interesting links to Pneumatic Mail
All good stuff.

Hello Rodney.

Your cutout looks like it is dated in 1885.
The article by by J.D. Hayhurst O.B.E. has some references on pages 2 and 3.
See:
http://www.cix.co.uk/~mhayhurst/jdh...c/book2.html

It has references to a 75c Letter-card of 1880 and a 75c Envelope of 1885 (15 January).
The earlier 75c of 1879 was the wrong design and colour. the 1885 envelope was violet with a pink stamp.
I cannot find information there about the colour of the 1880 75c stamp, but I can't see any other choices.

Regards
Steve
