Nice stamps, but I bet these are extremely difficult to find used.

These covers were mailed by favour in Syria.

Yet another story of Feigenbaum-related bogus stamps. :(

Hi Rob22
You can find a lot of these cinderella labels and others in the COL lect con NECT online catalogue. Select 'cinderella' for the country and then select 'oman (state of)' or whatever country is on the label and then you can browse through the catalogue. Not all labels are there but there is a lot.

Thank you Roy. Shall have a browse.
The Sultanate of Oman is covered by Michel
Not so "The State of" , must be cinderellas, if Michel does not cover.

I wonder if an old Minkus catalog would list State of Oman? What was the last year of publications of Minkus cats?

State of Oman Catalogue
Greyphil

From the internet. Author "Paleograph" 2011


I forgot to comment of the Greyphil catalogues. I have a lot of admiration for collectors like Greyfield & Duester who will spend years seriously documenting and cataloguing a field that is scorned by most "serious" philatelist.

The likes of Erler, who has single-handedly published 17 volumes of a Catalogue of German Revenues (Volume XVIII alone is composed of... 18 volumes !); Bernhard Luerssen who has made a fantastic catalogue of Elleore stamps, another one for the Principality of Seborga, and who is currently working on Ile Barbe and Ile Roy...

Wolfgang Baltus with his series (now 7 volumes) on classic phantoms; Jon Aitchison with his Lundy and Smaller Channel Islands catalogues. Fritz Billigs with his 44 volumes of Philatelic Handbooks; Forbin, Bourdi, Abrams, to name but a few.

It is a pity that the Greyphil catalogues are not readily available, because they document an area that is both intriguing and interesting, and the State of Oman stamps are now found in most collections, being typical "packet material".

I got mine directly from the author, and I don't remember seeing it advertised anywhere. Mine id a PDF file that I computer-printed and got hardbound to fit in my philatelic library. I would love to find an original copy.

The "State of Oman" issues are mostly Clive Feigenbaum creations (Feigenbaum being the same individual behind Staffa cinderellas). The earlier "State of Oman" issues, including the JFK/RFK surcharge shown above, were created by someone else, but these also were purely fantasy issues and never saw postal use. Legit Omani issues are inscribed simply "Oman" or "Sultanate of Oman". They also feature most inscriptions in Arabic; Clive's cinderellas feature mostly English.

Any set of six that came as a 3x2 miniature sheet is one of the Feigenbaum issues; the earlier "State of Oman" issues were issued in sheets.
