Hi Rod,

I think the tulip stamp is a post paid (Post Betaald) label for use on business mailings.

Here's a strip of five similar stamps from an eBay seller's listing who just describes them as business stamps with no other details that I can see:

Hi Rod,

The plakzegel on the first page is listed in Benelux Revenues by Barefoot. Its catalogue number is 310 (of more than 500 plakzegels).

Also the "frying pan" issues you reference are colourless (albino) embossed, so not the same as the one you show on the first page. (These are also listed in Barefoot.)

Right! Thank Jan,
correction noted, not sure if I can alter an old post.
I'll check out Barefoot.
Much obliged.

Other Post Betaald


The stamps read "PORT BETAALD" as you can also see in the URL of the BPOST-link Rod provided. Some also have the French wording "PORT PAYÉ."
PostNL now calls them "attention zegels" as they make mailings appear personal by having a postage stamp instead of a meter mark.

A Pig posting letters

From a foggy memory.
Netherlands, Slogan cancel.
Many years ago, a good friend, I have sadly lost contact with,
Mr. Tracy Barber, offered this image on a Netherlands "Gull"
on RCSD (Recreation, Collecting, Stamps, Discuss)

The wheel turns, sometimes grindingly, but it does.
The solution was to be had eventually.

Interesting explanation of the use of a pig in the cancellation.

In German "Schwein haben" indeed means to be in luck. In Dutch, we use the word zwijn (swine) or varken (pig) for the animal. In Amsterdam, especially, the verb "zwijnen" derived from "zwijn" has the same meaning as "Schwein haben."

Hi NSK,

Yes, of course. Thanks for the correction.

My fingers and brain were not firing on all cylinders. [:)

Too much forum surfing too late at night!

Rod, the two unknown labels are two "ATM" labels. The top one is an older one. I have several and they all have a tendency to fade really fast

Thanks Pete,
I had them down as Klussendorf or Frama,
But could not see them listed in my Catalogue.

The "attention zegels" have me querying everything.
National Posts of some countries are becoming confusing,
since de regulation.

Rod, I do not believe they are in the NVPH catalog. These things are more or less generic, like the labels that the USPS uses; the amount of postage is printed by the clerk. These things come in all sorts of values depending on what you are mailing.

Cheers Peter, your "ATM" confused me.
Now I get it, counter printed labels V Framas / Klusendorf

We have them in Australia, in my town, difficult to by a normal postage stamp. Our labels are boring black and white labels, but with great postage information.
