Beginners Collection.
80% of my collection is CTO with voids, so pages will be scattered,
I'll post with finished pages as they arrive,
Not a great deal of material, but I'd like to keep in 1 thread.

So, first up, seeking information for an Album Page. Cinderellas.

This all the info I have, if any further history is available, please advise.

Post-War Postal Charity Labels

Multi-Coloured Charity Label
This multi-coloured charity label depicts
a health resort and the Polish eagle.

Charity labels such as these were sold in the period immediately after World War II to raise
funds for the reconstruction of health resorts for Polish postal and telegraph workers.
It is inscribed "NA ODBUDOWE UZDROWISK", "Z.-Z.-PRAC. POCZTiTEL" and 5 zt (zloty).

Sepia Tone Charity Label
A similar single coloured label is slightly smaller.

The building shown is the main block of the 5-building "Sanato" sanatorium in Zakopane in the southern part of Poland. (It has 73 rooms & 92 beds if you must know).

Built in 1912 & purchased in 1928 by the Polish post office for Polish postal workers, it was mostly destroyed during the war but rebuilding started pretty soon after 1945. The building is now in private hands & is falling into ruin

I have a feeling that these were printed by the State printers in Krakow. They have the look & feel in printing & paper of the 1947 "Culture " sets



The control number in the bottom right of the bi-coloured stamp is very similar to others from this period. Here's a full view


And here's two stamps from the period with control numbers


Finally, here's the 1 Zloty value from the series featuring postal workers' holiday homes in Cyrhli near Zakopane

Ooh, I've got more, they were doing this pre-war.

Here's a cover from Warsaw to Vienna dated 21 March 1927. Concession rate to Austria was 30gr. & the sender tried to use a 10gr. Postal workers charity label for postage. The Austrians rightly caught it though & charged postage due.



That chalet-type bulding, at the foot of the mountains, could be Zakopane again.

In case you don't know, Zakopane is a HUUUUGE tourist-ski-holiday resorty place at the foot of the Carpathian mountains.

Nice thread and stamps. Thanks for sharing.

YeaPolska wrote: "in case you don't know, Zakopane is a huge tourist-ski-holiday-resorty place......." Oh, I know it all right. Zakopane is also a great summer destination for hiking in nearby Tatras National Park, and other places. Its main street downtown is a pedestrian mall. I was there last June and also back in summer, 2011. But go quickly before Zakopane gets "discovered" by American tour groups. Best way to get there, from the Polish side, is to fly into Krakow and take the bus to Zakopane.

Marvelous information, thank you very much indeed.
Off to make an Album Page....

My first completed page arrives at 1925, the next in the late 1940's
so gaps are considerable.

Poland is a dichotomy, lots of common CTO material, at reasonable prices,
but decent pages /small collections, are hotly bid upon, I have lost the last 18 tries at material.
Being in Oz, the currency exchange and shipping puts a heavy load on being competitive.

I recently looked at "Dan the stamp Man" offering on a page of Turkey,
it had 1 bid at 99c (1 page) shipping to Australia $12
I am now spending a quarter of what I was outlaying a year ago.

1925

Looks good to fill a page doesn't it. We'll have to see about filling in some of those empty spaces, there's much of the pre-war stuff that is common & pretty well valueless. After the weekend maybe, leaving as we speak for a major music festival...

Unfortunately your Charity Stamps for the Polish Legions are forgeries as well.

At the start of WWI a Legion of Polish soldiers was organized in the Austrian army. Five fund-raising charity labels were issued between 1915-17 & a set of 4 was also ordered but not issued. Printed in Vienna, they were released onto the philatelic market but they were also forged & it is mostly the forgeries that one sees on eBay etc.

Here's a set of Genuine unissued Legion labels




Forgeries are easy to spot. Check the Eagle's right talon (the left one looking at the label) Genuine have 4 claws to the talon, forgeries have only 3, or maybe a bit of a stump of a 4th


This block of forgeries shows the variance in printing. In the upper left label, the left talon is barely printed, shows clearly on the lower right one.


Finally, here's the first of the Legion charity labels issued in 1915

That's a great link for the Zarki labels, Rod, nice & concise identification of the forgeries.

I notice a reference to Stefan Petriuk ( a HIGHLY esteemed philatelist in this area) stating that only about 300 genuine stamps survive. Judging by the number of genuine ones I've seen, I believe that number to be way too low

Here's the third set issued on 24 Oct 1918

Lip smacking information, thank you YeaPolska.
Fabulous scans of yours.

Now have time to change my album page to "forgeries" which is OK.

The General Gouvernment Copernicus sheets were printed with two plates I & II, with 4 sectors to the sheet. These are marked in the lower centre of each sheet I/1 to II/4.

The "Broken line through globe" variety is found on all sheets from I/4 & II/4 sectors.

Here's the illustration from the Fischer catalogue


Your mini-sheet is sector II/3 & there is a constant variety on some of these as well as I/3. This is the "missing dot after 24" variety.

It's in the left hand margin


On sectors I/3 it's stamp #4 which is what I have, on sector II/3 it's stamps 4 & 9. Now, my copy DOESN'T have the missing dots but have a good look at yours, Rod, you may be in luck.

I am indeed in luck. Thank you very much, YeaPolska.
