I've got a bunch of these and thought I'd show a few. I do wonder why so many private posts exist for Morocco, are there similar private posts for other French Colony countries?

Beautiful collection.

More on these on this thread:

Stamps of Ethiopia before it joined the UPU are effectively a private post running from Entotto/Addis Abeba to Djibouti, where Somali Coast stamps covered the mail's journey onward.

Regarding the Saffi-Marrakech stamps, has it been sorted out whether the stamps where the ship lacks a banner are forgeries or varieties?

Morocco wasn't a French colony then (or, formally, later), hence, presumably, the proliferation of private postal arrangements.

Nice collection! With the 2021 edition, Scott started listing Morocco local posts, so will be interesting to see if that has any impact on price/popularity of them in North America in the next few years.

Thumbing through Maury, reviewing Guiana stamps, I found some stamps for Amazonie, which were for a local post for a mining and railroad company. They were issued in 1895.

That's good to know, they are very interesting stamps and I saw strong demand on eBay for them.
