Rod thanks for posting.

I like to get more info on these stamps. Scott does not list them.
They are intercolonial airmail stamps from Spanish Guinea.

Overprinted on revenue stamps movil = general revenue and on impuesto Sobre Contratos de Rabajadores = workers contract tax.

They seem to be private overprints from around 1939 (?).
Are they listed in Edifil, maybe with a footnote?
Also are there any prices indicated?

Thanks a lot

1941 revenue stamps overprints for airmail use. All the catalogs list them, look around #227 (Michel), #290 (Scott), 294 for Yvert, 317 for SG, and #259 for Edifil.

Maybe $40 each, depending on condition? Just a ballpark, I'm sure others will have a better idea.

classic paper,

thanks for the reply. I do not have any of the 3 catalogs mentioned.
Can you please do me the favor of checking if the catalog overprint is the same as in the picture posted by Rod at the beginning of the tread.
Thanks a lot

Opinion.

#290 (Scott),


Jos's stamps are NOT the same Opt as Sc#290

Vayolene is spot on! (The auction lot scan)
Jos, you need a someone with a Galvez Catalogue.
(Always wanted one myself, but dashed expensive)

I have the 1970 reprint of the 1960 Galvez catalog, which is about the best resource for the Spanish civil war issues, but it doesn't have colonies, so doesn't list Spanish Guinea. There must be a different Galvez to cover the colonies.

Below some email input from member Gmot

Not in Edifil I'm afraid, but only the set with the different overprint. I also checked items for sale on Delcampe, and couldn't find that set listed.

Jos, that was a screaming bargain!
I would have bought that in a heartbeat.

Catalogues I am seeing downunder.
