Cannot classify these two? In my research, they do not appear in Scott's under Italy or Poland? Don't know if they are Local Post issues or what? Image Not FoundIdentification needed. Thanks!

re: Italy or Poland or Cinderella?

The stamps without the overprints were done for the Polish Government in Exile in Italy (I think) as part of a series of 5 in 1946, I have no idea what the overprints signify though. That might help a bit! The overprints seem to be French and something about liberty - my high school French sucks but I'm sure several of the members can do the translation!!

The French text has a typo: Quattre is mispelled (quatre). This said I wonder what are those four freedoms. Does anyone know?

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt articulated his vision for a postwar world founded on four basic human freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

re: Italy or Poland or Cinderella?

The stamps were overprinted in 1946 in commemoration of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The four freedoms which Roosevelt espoused were:

Freedom of speech.
Freedom of worship.
Freedom from want.
Freedom from fear.

" .... Freedom of speech.
Freedom of worship.
Freedom from want.
Freedom from fear. ..."


What lofty goals, and how have we mere humans
done achieving them here on planet Earth these days ?
Something to think about during this Holiday season.
I'd write more but it would cross the verboten line into
national politics and international diplomacy.

Postage stamps were once a useful implement to use
in promoting awareness of the goals and some of the
efforts that have been made, but today, our mails
seldom bear any of the thoughtful designs created
and sold more as a supplemental revenue stream than
information source.
Oh well, who cares?
We collectors can boycott the trashy as well as the
often remarkable stamp issues, limiting our collections
to classic and post classic stamps.
