So I've been going back and forth,
Think it's time to ask a little help if I could?
I keep relabeling these and I think it time to put them to a rest...
I'm using a 09 Scott's c-f and what ever else I can find
I think the 2nd 25c and the 20c are possibly French colonies
The 10c could be a #54-55 and possibly #57-58

First one looks like Yvert 58, second and third, Yvert 60, of which there are three types, yours probably being Type I, fourth, Yvert 37, but I await views from la France. Can't help with Scott numbers.

You have the Scott numbers right. The paper color of the 10c is best seen by looking at the back. Unless the paper color is very strong (it varies), it can be hard to tell from a scan on a computer screen.

What else could it be/what is the alternative? It is an Yvert type III, which is as common as the type I.

EDIT:Duh. Like vayolene said.

Looks like the cancel is 373, if that helps at all. :) The stamp itself looks like Scott 58, but as stated above there are different types of 58. That upper right corner might help narrowing it down.
