Hey, they don't look bad on a page like that.

Received the Copernicus sheet with thanks, Rod. Lovely. Your email is bouncing back consistently, not sure what the problem is.

Thanks for responding Rick,
I was a bit concerned, I didn't hear if you had received the sheet,
thought maybe the condition was not up to your approval.

All Ok then. Whew.
Do you want duplicates I don't need, to be sent back to you?

Cheers.

Hi Rod,

I believe your 50,000 Mk on 10 Mk stamp is either SG 205 deep turquoise or SG 205a blue-green.

SG 205 has a larger design (28 mm x 22 mm) and SG 205a has a smaller one (27 mm x 21 mm).

Scott doesn't seem to differentiate between the two shades which is strange because they are different sizes.

It looks as though Scott also only lists one of the original 10 Mk stamps although they use a different colour to describe it from the surcharged version.

G'day Nigel,
Thank you very much, I'll look into that, and drag out my old Polish Catalogue.
Very interesting.

Hi Nigel.
I'd suggest there are 6 different stamps?
2 sizes in the original issue.
2 sizes in the Surcharged blue-green
2 sizes in the Surcharged deep blue or whatever.

My Polish Catalogue just gives "niebieski" =Blue, for all stamps.

Here is what I have, The deep Blue is the larger format stamp.

The Polish Catalogue does not list the surcharge in the 2 size formats,
yet my examples prove this.

I'm afraid Scott is of little help when it comes to the "Peace with Russia" as the Sower stamps are officially known. As I mentioned before, they don't even catalogue the smaller redrawn 10Mk value which was also overprinted. There are 7 shades of the large 10Mk & 2 shades of the smaller listed in Polish specialized catalogues. There are 5 paper varieties plus dozens of perf. combinations as a result of the Poles getting the old Austrian perf. machines after WWI.

There are several sub-types of the Sowers within the printed sheets which led James Mackay (a serious philatelist in his day) to state that this was THE most complex issue.

Sorry about that 80Mk Miner, Rod, I just don't have any spares at all, didn't notice it missing when I was compiling the sets. If you could send any duplicates back I'll pass them on to my other contacts, Cheers.

Thanks a bunch Rick,
pasting your comments on my album page for future reference.

I think we shall forgive Scott, I don't think it stands as the benchmark for any country other than the US.

Kudos to Nigel for picking up this in the first instance.

No worries with the missing stamp, crikey, the others were magic, many thanks.
Sending back the duplicates and some of my own.
You filled many, many gaps, early Poland looks passable now.

That 1973 Semi-Postal Steiner Page 90 is interesting as both values were also issued as black-prints with the denominations crossed out. Some of the Polish black-prints are a bit pricey but these two are quite affordable. On my personal stamp pages I've incorporated these sheets with others from the set so I've modified yours, Rod, & digitally added the blackprints.



The unknowns are rocket & balloon post commemorative labels.

The upper left label, blue with the numeral 6 & a rocket, was issued for the 6th experimental rocket flight conducted by the Krakow Aeroclub 3 Feb 1965. A total of 30,000 were printed in sheets of 20. My only listing is from the 1990 Polish specialized catalogue where they are priced for about $1.

The 4 balloon post labels are from the 33rd Poznan International Fair. They were issued 20 June 1964 & the labels bear the name of the 4 balloons, Poznan, Syrena, Katowice & Polonez. 16,000 of each were printed in sheets of 20, & again they are priced at $1.

There was tons of this type of material issued in Poland in the 1960s & even today, covers bearing these labels are listed on eBay for a couple of bucks, but they don't sell there's just so much of it around & so few collectors of this material.

Tying in with the Copernicus sheet, here's a balloon cover dated 2 Sept 1973 from Poznan, the site of the world stamp exhibition "Poznan; '73"



Here's a sheetlet of the labels
