Interesting triangle cancel on the red 45c stamp (Sc #100). Anyone familiar with what that indicates? Nothing similar in my (smallish) collection.

Thanks! gmot

Guess:
Postage Due.
I have a sheet of Ethiopia ? I think, with the same triangular surcharge? opt?

No, apologies.
Ethiopia had T=Taxe = Postage Due.
Your triangle looks familiar though.

Thank you, perhaps it is the underpaid/postage due handstamp found with "T" in a triangle in France/French colonies. I was unable to find another example in my French African (and my French collection is almost non-existent).

These two interesting resources both discuss the use of the triangle T in French colonies (Senegal and Indo-China).

In my Madagascar stamp, either the T was not present (as in your examples) or perhaps too faint to register - on a close up scan I can see some ink in the centre of the triangle.

Hi Rod,

I believe the "B" in a pointing-up triangle is a postage due precancel from Paris.

I have a similar cancel on a 1 franc postage due stamp.

Thanks Nigel..Saved.

Gmot.
Guess : I think the blank triangle would be a subsidiary hammer, to cancel postage due stamps on cover, without necessitating another dated cancel.
It explains the triangles on the French, but not on your apparently mint Madagascar.

Solved
The triangle served to obliterate tax stamps or postage stamps used as tax stamps. The empty triangle exists in different sizes.

Confirms my guess.

Brilliant - thank you! My Madagascar stamp is not mint, so presumably was used in the colony as a tax stamp then.

Andoany (aka Hell-Ville, Helville)
Andoany, (after Anne Chretien Louis de Hell), is a city in Diana Region, Madagascar with a population estimated at 39,500 in 2013.
Nosy Be (aka Nossi Be - my preference)
Amazing the Eastern coastline is so straight.
