Trying to catalogue these stamps but unsure what they are. Can anyone advise? Stamps still on paper so don't know the watermark. Bottom block dated 1940. Thanks for your help and apologies if I'm missing the obvious...

Wigeon44,

That stamp was also issued in booklet panes of 6. Sometimes the perforations were trimmed. According to the Hibernian Catalog:

"Panes with the perforations trimmed on one side are worth approximately one third less; panes with the perforations trimmed on two sides are worth approximately half of the prices given."

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

Believe this is an Irish stamp too but no markings on it. Can anyone advise?

Thank you Dan. So this is then likely a variant of Scott #106?

Based on the date stamp and without checking the watermark, I would say that is the most likely ID.

As for the other stamp you posted, I've never seen that before. Without a country ID or a value, it's unlikely that it is a postage stamp. It could be part of a souvenir sheet or a Cinderella. I only collect to 1990 so I'm not familiar with the newer S/S issues.

Excellent. Thank you Dan.

I found another block of 1/2p stamps with no backing and could ID WMk 44. These ones had 2 imperf edges so will Id them as used #65a..

I will continue to look for more info to ID the other possible Cinderella stamp. Appreciate your help.

The last image posted, to me, has a typical "British" feel,
perhaps look for Great Britain genuine Christmas stamp set, where this may be a selvedge design. (or a stamp "tab")

Thanks Dan - will take a look there. Possibly the Stamp World stir will have it. Couldn't find anything for Ireland.

Checked the Stamp World web site and nothing similar came up using the Christmas theme for their search tool.

You may have been correct, an Irish Slogan exists 1966 for a short period...

Hint : Try looking for Christmas stamps 1965-1967 see if any souvenir sheets have this tab.

Just found in my collection........
(another reason why not to "soak" all stamps, only those you wish to mount, otherwise keep on piece gentlemen.)

Looks like a 1968 issue.

This angel is the lower of 2 labels in the centre of Ireland's 1995 Christmas sheetlet of SG978 (13 x 28p stamps for the price of 12)

Amazing detective work everyone! Thanks so much for figuring this one out! It seems then that the cancellation slogan used in 1968 continued in use for some decades.

Rodney's definitive stamp (4 without the p denomination) was from the first decimal definitive issue from 1971. This series was not replaced until 1983, and this stamp with this particular cancel could have been used even later.
