re: Help with French stamp

Hi Pooh,

It's a 1938 issue Scott #343.
The CV is a company perfin for Charles Vairon, Le Havre, Seine Inferieure.
I don't have my Stanley Gibbons to hand at the moment but if you need a SG number just re-post.

re: Help with French stamp

This stamp was issued in 1938, designed and engraved by Henry Cheffer. It's Yvert no 390, SG 593 and I've no idea what the Scott number is.

Other stamps in the set show a lady from the Champagne region wearing their distinctive dress and looking very chirpy as she holds a champagne flute and some views of cities, Avignon, Carcassonne and St Malo.

Don't know what CV stands for.

Cheffer engraved a lot of stamps from the 1930s though to his death in 1957. His Marianne issued long after his death was voted the most beautiful definitive of the 20th century.

re: Help with French stamp

Charles Vairon was probably a company in Le Havre, departement Seine Inferieure. Can't find any info so it probably no longer exists.

re: Help with French stamp

Usually, perfins detract from the value for most collectors. A collector of perfins may desire the stamp more.

As Michael said, it is clearly more valuable in the eyes of the beholder.
Did a quick scan on Hipstamps. A dozen or so Used stamps being offered and a similar number of Mint ones. Used prices range from $0.19 to $0.90. Mint and MNH from $0.71 to $5.00 (which is the higher than catalog price.
Always amazed by the range of prices dealer sell their run of the mill stamps at. Does anyone ever look at their competition pricing, or do they like having lots of stamps that don't sell in inventory? Since Scott has been inching prices up all the time (with little reality check, as any auction buyer can testify), I am not surprised. Put a bit of deflation on ever rising stamp prices and you will finally see all sort of selling strategy adjustments.
There is no reason to sell fast, if next year prices can be expected to increase...this is the reality behind catalog sellers with their annual price increases...got to sell catalogs!
I did an analysis some time ago, (Europa ) and all prices are adjusted seemingly by running a small software utility program.... doubt that anyone at Scott ever worried about a reality check.

Sort on prices and see where the bottom is and the what price range you can expect!

If I was selling this perf-in stamp, I would price it just above the minimum (non perf-in) equivallent stamp on the market..in this case $0.20 to $0.25.
