Hello fellows, I purchased a lot of Swiss included were 4 Cantonal issues evidently cut from post cards. Are these from the original plates? Are they reproductions, if so when when were they printed? Do they have any collectible value? Thanks for your consideration. Wolf-==-

Thanks for the image. First, these are not cut squares, implying they are from postal stationery. Cutouts is probably a better term.

These are not from the original dies of the Double Geneva. Based on the look, the postcards where these originated is from the heyday of postcards, guessing somewhere around the 1890s. The original card would have some smallish value; cutouts probably very little.

Here is what I'm pretty sure is the original picture postcard:

Wow, thanks! I know now. I have the 4 of 6 except the Dove and the 4r. Oh well, I'll just put them in my Album and make a note of their origin. Cheaper than spending $40K on originals. Wolf-==-
