re: France-fancy "town/city cancels.

Hi Everyone;

I have a few also, plus a couple hundred town cancels from England, as well. I didn't know that there was a catalog for such specialized material. I just like to cull it out of regular duplicates to list for those that are specialists.

Happy collecting

Can't say about fancy/pictorial cancels, but the postmarks of Great Britain are well studied. One of the best resources for the earliest types of cancels (the type you see on later Penny Reds, for example) is a book by F. Hugh Vallancey ("British Postmarks", Billig's Handbook on Postmarks, Vol 9, 2nd Ed, 1950). Much of the book is devoted to listing the number/code for a lot of post offices in the British Empire of the 19th Century.

For modern postmarks, Stanley Gibbons publishes a "Collect British Postmarks" catalogue (some day I will buy it). I suppose much of the work by Vallancey would be included in the modern Stanley Gibbons publication.

re: France-fancy "town/city cancels.

Hi Everyone;

I have some interesting advertising cancels on British stamps. I have one with "Nestle's Quality Street, Magic Moments", a type of fancy candies, ofter given for gifts on the holidays. I also have one with "Washington Apples", and the growers association apple logo. Another one I have is a surfer girl in a bikini, but I can't tell from the text, what is being advertised.

re: France-fancy "town/city cancels.

The French postmarks with a fancy slogans are called "flammes"- and they seem to be uniformly neat and clear in their application. AFAIK there is no on-line catalogue as such, but if you visit the website "flamme.philatelique.ouvaton.org" then click on "recherchez les flammes" you will find a list of A-Z postmarks by town - your examples may be shown or not.

Large sorting centres have struck in France too, so regrettably there will be no flammes in the future. You should be aware that these are extensively collected in France although monetary value is not high.

French collectors seem to be much more creative in their collections than the rest of us, and seem to be interested in everything - ploughing through French collector's websites can be fascinating way of spending a few spare minutes - and French is a fairly simple language to follow in print at least - speaking it and understanding the spoken word is something else entirely!
