Just found these in the back of one of my albums.
Quite interesting, so I searched to see what I could find out about them.

Zaragoza (1937)

Stamp-issuing status: inactive. A province of northern Spain. The Nationalist authorities overprinted contemporary Spanish issues for use in Zaragoza in 1937. Through the late 1940s, a number of large, colorful charity stamps were issued in Zaragoza. Although inscribed "Sin Valor Postal" ("Without postal value"), these are often mistaken for postage stamps.

I had uploaded this to an earlier topic but since this thread is specifically about locals, here it is again. What I do not know about this local is whether or not it is a forgery. It is a 1 cent black on buff or very dirty white paper.

Lithuania local issues

1. Raseiniai ( Rossingen ) local issue of 1919

In 1918, there was a shortage of postage stamps in the city of Raseiniai after the German Occupation Authority allowed the organization of the post-offices in Lithuania. Total 36,624 stamps were printed at a local printing shop and used from January to March 1919 until situation became normalized.

I have a set of these, basically the same stamp design on different colored papers.



I'll look around to see if I can find some more locals to share.
The biggest challenge for me is to remember where they are.

Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, UK.

Cycle Mail.
I found these for a Tete-Beche collection which I'd planned to start but put on hold.
So the locals thread it is for now.

Love the Christmas one

I don't know anything about these, except that I think that they are local stamps produced by the Nationalist forces in Valverde del Camino during the Spanish Civil War
