    Stamps of the Legion of French Volunteers,from 1941 and 1942.
    Although classed as cinderellas,they are listed in the Maury catalogue. OURS.jpg lvf.jpg lvf 2.jpg

    Attractive stamps ! Although no postage stamps,but "contribution-
    stamps" they are found on field-post letters bearing german
    field-post cancellations.
    There are other issues for the "Flemish Legion",the "Wallonian
    Legion" and the "Danish Legion".All were military units,closely
    related to the SS. Member of all legions were die-hard Nazis.
    Many of them were trialed and sometimes excecuted by their
    home-countries after the war.
    All these issued are listed by Michel.

    Great stuff Anglobob!

    Cinderellas perhaps, but they certainly are more desirable than most.

    More cinderella stamps .The five stamps with a portrait of General Joffre were sold in a booklet of 20 stamps.The proceeds from this went towards a national monument for Joffre. Joffre.jpg

    Great page! What do you know about the bullseye cancels? They look like postal cancels. Were they favor cancels provided at the location of sale, or done at some later time?

    These were not valid for postage so the cancels are not legitimate.However,they are very attractive and look genuine.Now and again , I find cinderella stamps which have cancellations but the majority are not postally used.
