Confederate Facsimiles: Group of 14 "mint". Sometimes described as reprints, these are facsimiles made for collectors (I believe that these date from the 1950s). On the back each bears the text "Facsimile / No. XX" (numbered 1 to 14). While these initially look Imperforate, they are die cut but just held together in a block by tiny breaks in the cutting. The 12-block is intact, but weak due to the very tiny connectors. The pair was originally attached somewhere along the bottom of the 12-block. Ungummed on yellowish-white paper. All of consistent printing quality and appearance on thick white paper. All excellent quality with full margins. These are quite collectible. I have never before seen this type with die-cutting and the tiny connectors (breaks in the die cutting).

U.S. Empty Booklet Covers 1.5-Pound Accumulation: I just cannot discard anything, and neither could the previous owner of this group. A 1.5 POUND pile off EMPTY U.S. booklet covers for stamp issues mostly of the 8-cent to 34-cent time period. There are hundreds of items here. There is certainly duplication, but since there could be varieties (paper thickness, printing color, etc.) of some of these booklet covers, the "duplication" should be checked. I have not sorted through these and for all I know there might be one still with stamps in it. What use do these have? Many people like to display in their album the inside and outside of both the front and back cover of each booklet. Take what you can use of this and pass the rest onto another collector. The price is nominal to cover some of our labor, but the shipping/handling in the U.S. will be in the $9-10 range. Shipping cost is additional for this item.

Germany: FORGERY OF A FORGERY: Forgery imperforate souvenir sheet of four of U.S. OSS "Operation Cornflakes" Postal Forgery of orange-red 12 pf Hitler Head stamp with the text "FUTSCHES REICH" (ruined empire) and the jaw partly exposed showing the teeth. The original postal forgeries were created ca.1942-1943 by the U.S. OSS (Office of Special Operations; precurssor to the CIA) in the design as shown on this item, but with perforations and printed in large sheets. The original postal forgery is listed in Michel as #17 of such postal forgeries -- it is costly and sought after. Text from the Henry Gitner hgitner.com website: "These stamps were key part of a high level clandestine plan to undermine the morale of the average German citizen. The Allies felt that if many German people started receiving Anti-Nazi propaganda in their morning mail delivered punctually at breakfast time by the mailman, they would feel that their "German Empire" was falling apart from within... The OSS decided that the best way to smuggle the mail into the regular German postal system was to bomb mail trains. In addition to bombs to possibly destroying the trains, they dropped sacks of mail containing Anti-Nazi propaganda. During the confusion of cleaning up the wreck, the false mail sacks were mixed with the damaged German mail. The OSS re-created all aspects of the German Postal system from real business return addresses to many thousands of names and addresses pulled from the telephone directories. They even replicated the mail bags, postal markings and every other detail of the postal system. Every letter was franked with a 12pf stamp or two 6pf stamps. On opening the letter, they would find it filled with anti-Nazi propaganda including the 12pf "Futsches Reich" stamp." This, however, is a later -- I am guessing from the 1960s or perhaps the early 1970s; it is not a more recent reproduction which also may exist -- imperforate, gummed, souvenir sheet of four stamps reproduction / forgery of the original postal forgery. Over the years, I have seen dealers successfully selling this for around $20. NH VF souvenir sheet of 4; small natural paper inclusion far out in the margin away from the stamps. CANNOT BE SHIPPED TO COUNTRIES WHERE SUCH ITEMS ARE PROHIBITED.

Label: "ROANOKE, VA. / AN ALL-AMERICA CITY / THE STAR CITY OF THE SOUTH". Lithographed, rouletted label design (view of the city with mountains in the distance) with printer inscription "AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY, LITHO." Very attractive. The city was first named an All-America City in 1952 and six times subsequently. The huge star on a nearby mount was built in 1949 (it has an interesting history, see Wikipedia). This has the appearance of having been issued in the 1952-1965 time period. NH F-VF.
