This was my reply years ago from Tracy Barber, Tony

I have all mine listed under France~Vichy Government.

Possibly have a look as that under Scott.
Good Luck

It should be Scott #93. It is not pictured there, but it is pictured back in the New Caledonia section.

[edit: $1.00 in 2008 (no value listed for used, for the reason Rod cited, above.)]

Intriguing blighters, apparently available in France for use.

Here, some prepared for the 1941 New York Exposition.

(I like the way the Artilleryman has his foot outside
the frame of the stamp, brings him alive)

That New Caledonia stamp is overprinted "Wallis et Futuna" in red, so it should be listed under Wallis and Futuna Islands, which is still a French Overseas Territory.

Interesting is that the local council of these Polynesian islands is controlled by three kings that represent the three traditional kingdoms that ruled over Uvea (Wallis), Futuna and Alofi, the islands of the group.

Other "Wallis et Futuna" overprints that you will not
find listed under same (at least with Stanley Gibbons)

This Wallisian stamp has nice details, it is also a Nouvelle Caledonie overprint, but regularly issued.

Hey Rodster, I think your flora identification is correct - sharp for noticing the breadfruit.

Thanks for that BeeSee,
I am still not entirely sure, the leaves look a little thin,
so I am presuming immature seedlings.

I had a a bit of a clue, because this area centres around
the Mutiny on the Bounty. Old Bligh was sent out to the Pacific to
gather seedlings to plant in other parts of the world after
authorities realised the huge benefit of the plant.
My old fuzzy memory recalls a stamp somewhere of Bligh and his Breadfruit tree seedlings, as he was booted unceremonuously off his ship. Maybe it is NZ or Norfolk Island.
I just had a calculated guess.

In one of those quirks of history, the varlet who booted old Bligh off, and sent him adrift, was named Fletcher Christian.

Here's a stamp from French Polynesia, showing Bligh and the breadfruit plant (SG 397)1983).

My mother-in-law used to slice the breadfruit thin and fry them for breakfast in the morning in Tuvalu. I used to dip them in ketchup
