My understanding was that poster stamps are a subset of Cinderellas.
My understanding of Cinderellas was that they had no real monetary value depicted.
I've seen Trading stamps (like Plaid, S&H Green, Top Value, etc.) with a listed value of 1 mill to 1/20 of a cent. I've seen a Local Post stamp with a value of "5 bones", for example, but this Poster Stamp has a denomination of 65 Ore. (Imagine a backslash through the "O").

Were they advertising the PRICE of the SOAP, and not the postage value of the stamp?

I'm not very well informed in this area, so any enlightenment is appreciated.

Thanks for verifying my suspicion.

I have never understood most Cinderellas. Were stamps just so popular "back in the day" that this was deemed an effective form of advertising? Makes no sense now, but I suppose it did then.

re: Poster stamp from Denmark

Lars,

I think the answer is YES. The age of poster stamps and Cinderellas is long gone, but remember that major stamp shows issued Cinderellas, Christmas seals generated big bucks, and hundreds of medical, religious, charity, Indian, and other groups used seals to generate funds and promote their cause.

In addition, any Cinderella used is FREE advertising, gettting a FREE ride on someone's letter.

Good grief, you'd almost think me a lobbyist for seals.

Lars,

looks like Jan-Simon answered the specific question.

as to the broader, Cinderellas mean diff things to diff people, but generally they have no established franking power, although, as you note, S&H stamps have both a monetary power and redemption power.
