A lot of the back of the book overprints for various agencies are being faked due to rarity, so look out for forgeries .

Good place to help with this item I bought last year at a stamp show. I believe it is a customs document, but not entirely sure. Any help with the stamps or document is appreciated.

I would love to add to my collection of Franchise stamps but they are getting harder to find.

Rod, in my honest view, this item is an advertising cinderella from the PTT Printing Works, not BOB. But, I understand, that its meaning is diferent outside Europe.

Thank you Jill. That covers my piece well.

Hi Cursus,
yes, I agree with you. B.o.b. for me has become anything that is not main stream postal use.

Semi Postals
Air
Postage Due
Revenues
Flotsam and Jetsam.

All these things lie after 2017 postage stamps.
Well, they do in my Albums, and I must say are easy to find.

I take your point, hope you can cast a blind eye over my eccentricity.

The concept of "back-of-book" in some places -principally the Scott catalogue - is so wide that the back constitutes most of the book. In most (not all) of Europe, it means postage dues and officials, newspaper stamps etc. Not revenues or cinderellas, which don't sit in a mainstream catalogue. Air-mail and charity stamps lie in the main body of the book.

I agree with GeoffHa in that semi postals and airmail stamps ought to be considered as regular stamps. They are normally available at post offices and can be used by the public for regular use.

Catalogues can be all over the place on these things. Gibbons used to list Italian air-mail stamps separately. Why just those? And Belgian stamps separately. Why just those? That seems to have ended. Yvert separates air-mail. Maury lists them with the other issues. This avoids the silliness of Yvert's listing what were obviously air stamps in the main body of the book just because they lack the words "par avion".
