Hopefully this image works. I can find no reference to this postmark anywhere.. I am sure one of the superstars on this site can ID it !

Image didn't work.. but the link should. I think I still have the scan too big to upload but wanted to get the ball rolling.

Thanks.. will try to keep scanning and uploading directly,
Jere

re: Postmark ID help

Hi Jere,

Looks like a phantasy cancellation to me. It is not any of the typical French colonial postmark styles (who am I telling this).

Image Not Found

The low values of most of the French colonies definitive sets are quite difficult to find in used condition and I have see many with bogus cancels. And this is what I think you have here.

For the image upload to work -- just click upload image below -- the image cannot exceed a certain size, so that it displays on the screen without scrolling. Just resize the picture with any program or scan at a suitable size to begin with.
