Scarce Red Cross overprints on the 1929 Lundy Puffins issue.
Issued in 1940, very limited quantities.

Back on page 3 of this thread, desertgem posted images of Red Cross semi-postal stamp booklets issued by France. Here are images of the complete set of four allegorical "Seasons" stamps, all of which were designed by Pierre Gandon after paintings by French painter Nicolas Mignard (1606-1668), and issued by France (and apparently CTO, as were many French semi-postals.)

PS This is one of those instances where one has to see the stamps close to the size originally intended by the designer in order to fully appreciate their beauty, and so for art's sake, I have elected to also present images of these stamps in a smaller size. - n.




Engraved by Pierre Gandon, and issued on December 16, 1968:

Spring, Scott No. B421, Y&T No. 1580


Autumn, Scott No. 422, Y&T no. 1581.


Engraved by Pierre Béquet, and issued on December 15, 1969:

Summer, Scott No. 423, Y&T No. 1619.


Winter, Scott No. 424, Y&T No. 1620.

Exceptionally beautiful scans.
The third, perhaps be inducted into our thematic
"Family Mustelidae on stamps" I wonder?


That's a Yes:
The otter subfamily Lutrinae forms part of the family Mustelidae, which also includes weasels, polecats, badgers, and wolverines

That Mexico cinderella takes the breath away.

Wait, "I am not a cinderella collector. I am not a cinderella collector." Whew. *deep breath*

Okay, feeling a little better now.

I do bid on them at my stamp club (for trading purposes). The last time I did it, though I bid sight-unseen ended up with a sweet little collection of Austrian Notgeld.

I don't see that these have been added. The Plus Ultra stamps of Spain (missing high value).

rod222 - Glad you liked the Finland scans. Also, thanks for the delightful dose of weasel lore.

smauggie - Very nice stamps. I must put those Waterlow beauties on my want list.

Here are images of a couple more Red Cross semi-postal stamps from Finland, also designed by Signe "Ham" Hammarsten-Jansson and engraved by Alexander Laurén, issued on May 10, 1948, Scott Nos. B87 & B88, Facit Nos. 349 & 350.

- nethryk

Zachris Topelius (1818-1898), Finnish author, journalist, historian, and rector of the University of Helsinki who wrote novels related to Finnish history in Swedish.


Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804-1877), national poet of Finland, who also wrote in the Swedish language. There's a saying in Finland, "speaks like Runeberg," which means that the person speaks extremely well.

Consider me teased.
Do you have a duplicate?
When was this issued?
Perhaps it was for the French wounded in the DeLesseps Canal effort?
If so it might have been to raise funds for the hospital established in Ancon by an order of French nuns.

Consider me fascinated.

I have no idea Smauggie,
I am still working on them,
it seems to have its cynosure with the French Red Cross (Association)?
the cinderellas have a world wide focus
Panama, Teneriffe, mexico, melbourne, Lima etc.

Perhaps they were seeking funds worldwide
for the military in France.
At the moment I have doubts on their authenticity,
maybe poster stamps ?
We need wt1 to do some research :)

This has some relevence,
at least for the French red Cross in Australia,
yet it seems centred on Sydney

French-Australian League of Help
The French-Australian League of Help held its first public meeting in Sydney in December 1914. Its formation was due to a request from the War Chest Fund for assistance in providing comforts for the troops in France. This followed a November appeal for donations by Madame Georges Playoust, who became one of the first co-presidents.

Money was raised throughout Australia, including country areas, for French troops and their families. A clothing workshop was set up and fortnightly shipments were sent through the French Red Cross in London. Labels "Made in Australia by your friends" were sewn to articles of clothing. Two orphanages, "Waratah" and "Australie", were set up in France. Funds were used also to purchase ambulances.

A headquarters was established in Paris and the league cooperated with French military and civilian charities. Mr Holman, the other co-President, was awarded the Legion d'Honneur in June 1916.

After the war the league assisted in the reconstruction of French towns and farms, particularly in the Ardennes; providing funds to refurnish homes; and buying agricultural machinery and equipment for schools. Hundreds of thousands of pounds were contributed by Australians through the League. One French village changed its name from "Poilcourt" to "Poilcourt-Sydney" in gratitude for the aid received.

The League was re-established during the Second World War.
