It reads "the mighty spirit of the anointing blesses us."

At the top of the flag appears the word "Ukrainian."

Wilbur,

Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences. Russ

Not seen these before.
Can you offer us a scan of all different in the set please?

Ukrainian Cinderellas helped keep the country's fight for freedom, alive.

Hi rod222,

Photos show 6 different Cinderella's in blocks of four with different denominations for each block.

A better scan of the flag the lion is holding might help.

The bottom line reads "Head Office."
At the top appears "Ukrainian." I cannot make out the remainder, but something tells me this text will tell you what organisation commissioned these stamps.

The border inscription, as I remarked above, reads ""the mighty spirit of the anointing blesses us."

You also might help yourself by changing the title to include "Ukrainian" and attract attention of people interested in that area.

Brilliant Rod222, thank you.

NSK - Solid guidance. I'm figuring out this platform on the fly — I can see I've made several mistakes, not the least of which is posting in the wrong topic space. This is the best I could do on image quality.

I inherited my mother's collection. These Cinderella's were found in her 'what-not' box. Sweet but not illuminating. She purchased almost exclusively from a local Canadian dealer (now deceased). The city she resided in was originally homesteaded by Ukrainian farmers — so it jives.

What it reads:

Bratsvo voiakiv I (pervoi) Ukraïns'koï dyviziï UNA (Ukrainskoi Nazionalnoi Armiy).

It would be issued by the head office of the Brotherhood of Veterans of the 1st. Ukrainian Division UNA.

http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.co...Galizien.htm

The head office was located in Toronto, in the 1960s. See link at the bottom of the article.
