Hi,

Reviewing my Maury catalog of French colonies ( Dahomey specifically) for varieties I came across a couple odd translations with Google Translate... any help on what these actually mean would be helpful...

piquage a cheval = horse stitching ?

piquage oblique par pliage = oblique stitching by folding ?


Thanks in advance,
Jere

A bit of context would help!

These would make sense if related to booklet stitching, but no sense on a stamp. Are there any grave or acute accents missing from your post?
