Hi All,

I have these two "labels" in the style of Finland's 1875 definitive issue (the style and color matches Scott #20 and #23). These are much larger than the actual stamps (35mm x 40mm) and no denomination appears in the corner circles. I don't believe that they are proofs, but possibly printed as part of a souvenir sheet or for a philatelic event. Does anyone know anything about these? Photo should help provide any other details.

Thanks in advance for any help,

-- A --

These may be candy wrappers perforated to look like the Finland 1885 series stamps. Many years ago I saved a clipping (Linn's Stamp News?) about these labels, but I can't lay my hands on it.
