"The Strange Story of Puffinland" H.E. Harris sales presentation page with stamps and original product envelope. Harris, Tatham, and perhaps other dealers offered Lundy stamps with special text, etc. These types of items are listed by Aitchison in the 6th edition (2019) of his Lundy catalog. This example is H4 (of 7 known H.E. Harris versions) and includes the envelope. No date is given for this item, but I believe it to be from the early 1950s. The catalog value for the page is stated as 15 plus typically 5 for the envelope. The six early Lundy stamps are Mint VF, neatly hinged to the page. This example is in pristine condition: stamps, page, and envelope. Such dealer sales promotion items have become very collectible (there is even a priced catalog of similar types of items created by Tatham Stamp Company).

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.

Norwegian Missionary in Madagascar (Madagaskar) Local Post Stamps: NH VF reproduction souvenir sheet of 16 stamps, crudely printed to resemble the original 1894-1896 local post stamps. Each of the original four stamp designs / denominations is represented by four examples; each example has small differences (the originals were printed from crudely set hand-set type). The souvenir sheet, created by Norwegian philatelist Arne Bye in 1968 with only 200 souvenir sheets printed, states that these are "eftertrykk" (after-prints), but might be more appropriately termed photographic reproductions. With the original stamps (which are listed in the specialized catalogs) valued at hundreds of dollars each, this s/s of 16 stamps is as close as most collectors will get to owning examples. Each s/s is numbered; the placement on the paper and size of margins will vary (these were hand cut). These are rarely offered, but over the years, I have seen them sell -- and have sold them myself -- for over $100 in online auctions (when I have offered them, I have never started them for more than $50).

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.

ca.2002 imitation LABELS of U.S. 29, 32, 33, and 34 cent stamp issues relating to SPORTS. Two small "sheets" measuring 93 x 73 mm and 86 x 73 mm. The "stamp" designs are miniatures and have a black X over the denominations; The text "Not for used on mail." is in the sheet margins. The labels are self-adhesive, die-cut. The label side is yellowish and very glossy; the backside is white and dull surface without any printing on the back. They must have been created in 2002 or later because that is the date of the most recent stamps pictured on them. Experts in the field of test stamps, as well as the Scott editors have examined these items and have determined that a) none of them has seen them before or knows anything about them and b) that they are not likely to be any kind of test stamps. My guess is that they are "toy" stamps. [Please advise if you know the origin of these labels.]

"FUTCHES REICH" (ruined empire) Hitler Death Mask REPRODUCTION / FAKE souvenir sheet of four 12 pfennig stamps with text "WE EIN VOLK RETTEN WILL / KANN NUR HEROISCH DENKEN". NH VF. This is a "fantasy", a fake of a fake; no such souvenir sheet originally existed. The original propaganda forgery stamps were made by Allied Forces in support of Operation Cornflakes. An interesting and creative philatelic item. Based on the collection this came from, I am guessing that it was created in the 1960s or 1970s. I have not seen this s/s before and have not found it offered anywhere. The genuine examples of such items sell for around $25,000. CANNOT BE SHIPPED TO COUNTRIES WHERE SUCH ITEMS ARE PROHIBITED.
