France Cover with Sc #33 - 20c Napoleon III, Rouen Rodez to Toulouse

France Cover with Sc #33 - 20c Napoleon, Rouen to Toulouse

The seller who sold this to me listed this as Rousen, but it looks like it's from Rodez

You can find all the numbers (Gros Chiffres) for the towns here: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_des_bureaux_de_poste_fran%C3%A7ais_class%C3%A9s_par_oblit%C3%A9ration_Gros_Chiffres

I also got this comment from a twitter user: It is said, I don't know if it's true, that when a stamp bearing the effigy of Napoleon III was stuck upside down, it meant his disapproval of the political regime in place


France 1856 Folded Letter Sc #15a - 20c Napoleon III St Etienne to Mulhouse

Added to collection July 2022

 This will just be a post with all the stamps that I added to my collections in July 2022


July 2

Lombardy and Venice 1850 Scott #3

Lombardy and Venice 1850 Scott #3

For some reason Scott skips number 2... maybe things shifted around because there was a 60c blue stamp, however this one was never issued.  Either way.. just missing number 1 now from this set




Austria 1935 Scott B118/B121

Austria 1935 Scott B118/B121


This is listed in the Michel catalog as number 613/616, did I tell you how I hate that Scott separates the semi-postals? It is very annoying, especially when you have a set where 4 stamps are postage and 1 is semi postal (Olympic set from Germany comes to mind)

I always loved this set and Now I have added it to my collection


July 7

Japan Moonin stamps

Japan Moonin stamps
