Even as Finland based collector of 'everything' I wasn't aware of these. But (as usual) floortrader's right. The only way these can be is bogus (or maybe some kind of modern stamp exhibition cinderellas I've not heard/seen).

The background (scenery) is Finnish definitive of 1958/63, and I think the Zeppelin has been taken from German (Reich) airmail of 1936. And then all has been neatly photoshopped together, printed and perforated. Besides copycat design there are number of more 'technical' failures. Perforation is all wrong (all Finnish stamps of the era have perf 11 3/4). And print method appears all too muddy (genuine stamps are steel engraved recess and very sharp)...

But it is very lovely looking set, LOL.

Haven't seen these particular fantasy labels. There are many similar modern cinderellas appearing on eBay these days. Some of the more interesting ones appear to be of Russian origin.

They may be Russian. However, you would probably have scan through lots of Cinderella listings on eBay to find similar or an exact match for these. To my eyes, they look very similar to eBay items I have seen offered by seller, or sellers in Russia.

If you searched for "Cinderella stamps" only by Russian sellers, this would save a lot of time.



Oops! Just "ran into" this seller on eBay. Seller is "1_07553" and calls him/herself copystamps. His/her store shows that 2 sets of these are available.

Tim, as fantasy/bogus stamps go these are a really nice set; understated design, nicely composed and would look good in any World or Thematic collection. I assume they are laser-printed? The perforations look pretty professional, and I have seen much, much worse on genuine stamps. What quality is the paper?
