I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

Looks like a Scott #35 or 35a depending on color.

re: France

French stamps were commonly used in Foreign Offices. Many had unique Cancel Numbers to identify them, usually within a number such as small #3707 or large #5082 used exclusively for Constantinople. Circular date cancel were also used, as the one you have. It was commonly used on this very stamp, the 40c Orange Y&T #31 and this is footnoted in the Y&T catalog.

rrr...

Other common Post office number used were: Small number in losange: Alexandria #3704, Smyrna #3709, Alexandretta #3766, Gallipoli #3767, Jaffa #3768, Lattaquié #3769, Rhodes #3772.
For the large number in a losange: Alexandretta 5079, Alexandria #5080, Beyrouth #5082, Gallipoli #5086, Jaffa #5089, Lattaquie #5091, Rhodes #5094, Rhodes #5094, Salonica #5095. For a full list check the Y&T catalog.
All of these also have of course round Date/Town cancels. Some date or number cancels are very rare and fetch a large value surcharge on top of their regular catalog value. The Constantinople one is quite common.
