'Philatelic' Stamps (or Name Those Stamps) by Mike Mills @
There are certain stamps and certain countries that raise eyebrows among stamp collectors. ...
The practice started in earnest during the Cold War. Soviet bloc countries in Eastern Europe openly used their stamp issues to promote Communism in the West in the same way the USA promoted it's heritage on their stamps.
Somewhere along the way, the Iron Curtain philatelic bureaus found that they could become little capitalists by selling these new issues to stamp collectors around the world, and in no time at all the Warsaw Pact countries were churning out hundreds of issues a year for export. ...

Stamp Yellow Pages - Local Posts of the World - A GREAT WORK!! aj.
There are many types of local posts and cinderella stamps. Here is an attempt to clarify them. (from Locals Posts to Cinderellas to the bogus..)

United States Scout Local Post Issues
"Local post offices were once considered illegal in the U.S. because they competed with the United States Post Office. But in 1952 Herman Herst of Scrub Oak, New York discovered a loophole in the private express status. ...

Modern Freight Stamps of Faroe
Freight stamps were used as a "receipt" for parcel post shipments made by boats employing domestic boat routes controlled by the Faroese Government. It is possible that freight stamps were used prior to 1961, but these have remained the property of the shipping company. When first used, the stamps were canceled with straight-line name-cancels of the ship being used for transport, but later the cancellation was applied using a colored marker. After 1970, cancellations seem to have been left out completely. When first issued, freight stamps came in three different versions, each version bearing the name of the ship for which the stamp was to be used (Másin, Smiril, Ritan). However, since the stamps were used on all ships, authorities deleted the name of the ship beginning with the 1973 issue. Except for the emergency issues produced in 1965, the freight stamps were produced in rolls...

Cinderellas : Postage Stamp Wannabes - preface to an exhibit - :
the professor strikes again.. ;)

Cinderella Scout Labels
... labels issued to honor the Scouting Movement. "Cinderellas" is the nickname given to the stepchildren of stamp collecting, all those stamps and things that no one can find in Scott's catalog, and that no one knows what to do with.
The British coined the word to describe "labels that are not issued by a federal government for the purpose of paying postage." Many of these are privately printed or overprinted stamps by dealers, so they never had any postal value or use. However, the images are often very colorful. This is another exciting area of collecting for Scouts on Stamps!

Anton Haddeman's Virtual Album of QSL Stamps (Cinderellas)
"Radio amateurs from all over the world exchange their QSL cards to confirm their radio contacts. To cut costs, they set up some sort of postal service. QSL cards are not sent by direct mail, but they are collected by local QSL managers, who sort them by country, and bring them to the regional or national QSL manager. Here, the QSL cards are collected to be sent in bulk mail to other regional and national QSL managers, and vice versa.
This service is mostly free for all radio club members. To avoid the risk of receiving loads of cards, many clubs used to send their members a limited amount of QSL stamps each year, and sell extra stamps at a given (low) price.
These stamps had to be on the QSL cards that were collected by the local QSL manager (note: there used to be other systems, but this was a very common one).
The QSL service still exists, but the QSL stamps are, as far as I know, no longer issued. ...

On a " 'click here' to learn" link:
(old: ; now a Japanese concern..)

"In my article on poster stamps, I talked about what a poster stamp is. Most of us find it difficult to collect without interaction with other collectors, both for the sharing of information and the psychological need to know we are not alone in our "madness".

With that in mind, I mentioned the two main societies in the U.S. for those interested in poster stamps:

The Poster Stamp Society (url added c.2011),
c/o Walter Schmidt,
3654 Applegate Rd.,
Jacksonville, OR 97530,
With a specific focus on poster stamps, and the only such society I know of anywhere.

The Ephemera Society of America.
c/o Bradley Calvert,
P.O. Box 95,
Cazenovia, NY 13035,
is a more general society for collectors of all paper ephemera, not just poster stamps and Cinderellas. However, many of its members, especially the newer ones, list poster stamps as one of their collecting interests.
There are, of course, overseas societies. In England, there is The Cinderella Stamp Club whose members collect all items that look like postage stamps, including poster stamps. Write for information to
R.F. Rogers,
56 Conyers Way,
Great Barton,
Bury St. Edmunds,
Suffolk IP31 2SW England.
In France, L'Arc en Ciel is an organization for collectors of non-postal vignettes, similar in breadth of interest to CSC in England. Its secretary is
Jean-Claude Huteau,
2 allee Beaugency,
01000 Bourg en Bresse, France.
in English: (David passed away in 2006 but some of his expertise is preserved here - aj)

Lastly, in Australia is The Cinderella Stamp Club of Australia whose members, naturally, have strong interest in material from "down under." Write to the Club at
P.O. Box 889,
Chatswood, N.S.W.
2057, Australia.
If there are societies I've missed, please email me and I'll post it here.
Erinophilie International. The German poster stamp society. Write to:
Ludwig Reiss Kolmsdorfer
Haupstrasse 13/15
D-96194, Walsdorf-Kolmsdorf, Germany.
Having joined any or all of these organizations, you have the beginnings of a wonderful network of fellow collectors. To my knowledge, none of these societies yet has a website.
You can email Walter Schmidt of The Poster Stamp Society at
In my next column, I'll begin talking about the literature of poster stamps. So register and I'll let you know when it's posted.

Rigastamps - The Source for Alternative Philately - from Bonnie and Roger Riga (Fantasy et al stamps)
By alternative philately we mean almost any stamps or collateral material other than regular postage stamps. Cinderellas, antique advertising poster stamps, revenue or tax stamps, fantasies born out of an artist's dream or a con-man's scheme are just a few examples.
"What are cinderellas, anyway?" You remember the fairy tale about Cinderella, the stepchild that everyone pushed aside. Well "cinderellas" is the nickname given to the stepchildren of stamp collecting, all those stamps and things that no one can find in Scott's catalog, and that no one knows what to do with. As to what to do with them, that part's easy, collect 'em or sell them to us. We've spent quite a few years bringing cinderellas to philately's ball and guess what some folks are discovering ? What one collector thought was junk is just the specialty item that another collector has been hunting for years. Does all this sound familiar ? Simply put, if it looks like a stamp, or feels like a stamp and it's not listed in Scott's catalog then it's probably a cinderella. We probably deal in it,and you're likely to find it in our stock at a show or on sale through this website. This includes but is not limited to:
REVENUE STAMPS - Foreign tax stamps of every description and purpose, off and on document; (and returning soon) U.S. taxpaids and state revenues.
POSTER STAMPS - Classic antique advertising, expositions and fairs, philatelic souvenirs and many thematic areas such as Olympics, political campaigns, and World Wars I & II.
LOCAL POSTS - Hurt and Willams listed classics, German Stadtposts, Russian Zemstvos, Swiss Hotel Posts, Lundy Island, Rattlesnake Island, British Postal Strike, and post-WW2 DP Camp Posts.
CHARITY STAMPS - TB/ Christmas seals and collateral material, Red Cross stamps, Jewish National Fund seals and other Judaica, Spanish Civil War and other charities.
SPECIAL PURPOSE - Railway parcel stamps, telegraph stamps, semi-official airmails, rocket mail, ration stamps, test stamps, air mail etiquettes, and other postal ephemera.
FANTASTES - Melville phantoms, governments in exile, artistamps, and razorblade rarities.
BAGGAGE LABELS - Air, rail, ship and hotel.
POSTAL POTPOURRI - Imperfs, proofs, specimens, essays, facsimiles, forgeries and a wide variety of specialized material often listed only in foreign catalogs.
