I recently acquired pile of stamps and found unusual Cinderellas in it. There are few sheets 3x7 with three different columns of stamps on each sheet (see picture). I guess it was printed in England some time after World War I. I cannot find anything on the Internet - hope somebody knows something. Thanks.

Not seen them before.
They look more recent than 1919
Try Googling for information

In the first stamp "...spells Distruction (sic) ", wrong spelling surely.
Id think that these look as if they were produced by peoplw unfamiliar with the English language.

After looking at the first "stamp" a couple of times, I rather thought that the spelling mistakes were deliberate.

You could always try searching on the exact text.

"bolshevism means hunger and want" ... yes, in quotes

Thanks -this Russian forum discussion is very interesting. I speak Russian, so I understand that nobody ever seen such stamps before. They all assume that booklet is American, however my sheets clearly labeled "England". It is also interesting that the same image was used in both booklet and sheet printing.

I grabbed the first search result from the only phrase I searched.

Try searching for a few of the others, and maybe life will get even more interesting.

Cheers,

I am sure that "England" is printed only on 3x9 sheets I got. On the Russian forum they discuss a booklet with small 2x4 sheets, so I guess there is no "England" printed on those small sheets. So USA was the best guess for them.

It is interesting that you mentioned period after WWII. It was always my impression that term "bolshevik" was popular only before WWII, starting from the time (1917) when bolshevics took control in Russia. At the time of WWII it was obviously no any anti-bolshevik propaganda, and after WWII term "bolshevik" was slowly replaced by "communist".

The term "bolshevism" was still in use(in France) in 1942

Pure guess but could they be Nazi cinderellas used to try and recruit people to join their forces during world war two. the germans manaed to recruit quite large numbers from some occupied countries by stressing the Anti Bolshevik aspect of the war. The British and American reruits formed two small companies rather than regiments.
