re: First Issues and Number ones

This stamp (Stanley Gibbons 395a / Michel 393) was issued in 1962 following the end of the Algerian War. It was the first semi-postal issue of the new Algerian State:

Image Not Found

According to Gilad's Maps on Stamps, it is a "…relatively scarce semi-postal stamp, issued to raise money for the War Orphans' Fund. The stamp, also commemorating the 8th anniversary of uprising against the French rule in Algeria, depicts a hand holding an Algerian flag and a map of Africa; it is inscribed only in Arabic (against UPU regulations). It is the most expensive Algerian stamp (excluding varieties and errors) with a cat value of 400 Euro in Yvert. The stamp probably didn't see any real postal use, because it is listed in catalogues as only in mint condition."

According to the Kawa web site, approximately 250,000 children were orphaned as a result of the war, which resulted total military and civilian deaths on both sides roughly equivalent to the number of deaths resulting from the Vietnam War. I was unaware of the Algerian War until just a few years ago, which shows the power of the press, or perhaps the inability of the press, to tell the world's stories. That's not surprising. We humans simply don't have the capability to process all of the information that is available to us, not to mention information that governments and corporations hide from us.

re: First Issues and Number ones

I have what could be an Eastonian German occupation overprint like the one above. The color is the same as is the design but the original stamp has no denomination. It is overprinted KON. 10 KON. at the bottom. It’s as though the original stamp above was re-designed to be over printed. If it is fake, it’s a good one. Any ideas?
