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

While sorting through some old albums, came across the following. Any help would be appreciated.

Every stamp is the same except for the country name at the bottom in red. All appear to be French colonies or territories. Following is a single close up.

In addition I have the following 2 stamps (?) Both have gum, but no clue.

re: I Have No Idea

Your first set, if you look in the front of the Scott catalogue in the common design types, they are listed as the Colonial Education Fund issued in 1942.

re: I Have No Idea

Alfred and Jacques thank you very much for your quick responses. I knew someone one SOR would know the answers. I would never have thought to look at the common design types. Gives me another place to search. I had guessed that the Ireland stamps were cinderellas, but had no clue where to look.

Again thanks for the help

Mel

re: I Have No Idea

The Irish Cinderellas may well have been the work of Mr.Price (Price & Co), stamp dealers from Blackrock, Dun Laoghaire (Dunleary), Dublin. Most of the covers I have seen have been addressed to his firm, including one which I believe I sold here on SOR.
Back in my early collecting days, I made contact with the said dealer and his price lists were something to behold !! Unusual items, bulk lots that I never saw anywhere else plus cinderellas. They were quite the thing and I believe I have one somewhere, kept as a reminder of times past.
There are at least 10 different designs and possibly up to, or more than 16. They were issued in Miniature sheets of 4 different designs but I have only seen sheets 3 & 4 which I was outbid on long ago. They don't come up very often.
The cover I sold was date stamped 1958.

" ... They don't come up very often...."

Some time ago, it has to have been ten plus years or so, there was a mixed lot of Irish propaganda stamps offered in a Vance Auction that I bid on at more than double the "Estimated" realization. My paltry '2xEST' was smothered.
