The miniature sheet is mentioned in Michel, but does not have an official number.


Thank you, classical stamps. Strange that.

Rein.
Cracow Celebration. CTO (as is about all my collection) Sc#686 1955

White smooth thick paper, (snaps back firmly when flicked by finger)
Clear sieve paper when held against light source (fine wove paper) looks similar to tiny honeycomb.

Still seeking a Micrometer to measure paper, Engineering firms look down their nose
when I have requested a "cheap and nasty" but $150 for theirs is overkill.

It's from 1919, we don't have exact dates of issue.
Fischer catalogue number Cp30, type "b". Higgins & Gage #30

The 15 fennig stamps & cards were printed in 3 different types differentiated by the 2 lines on the upper right under the "15".

Type "a" has 1 short +1 long line
Type "b" has 2 short lines
Type "c" has 1 short +1 long line extending right across the value tablet.

This is found on the pre-printed postal cards with & without the value "F" in the value tablet.

Type "a" to "c", top to bottom


15fen was the domestic Polish postcard rate in 1919 in the Northern part of Poland.

The first 15fen card of the eagle in a shield type was the word "Pocztowka" (postcard) & indica overprinted on old German postcards.

1919 Aug 1, Warsaw, local postcard

The card was forwarded to Grodzisk where it was backstamped Aug 8 1919
& returned to Warsaw. The 2 handstamps are "Nieznany (Unknown) & "Zwrot" (Return)

Next up was a completely printed up card with denomination "F" for fennigs printed in the tablets

1919 30 Sept. Warsaw to Switzerland. Additional 15f stamp. Censorship mark

There were hostilities in the North West of Poland around the Poznan area, military censorship was in force

Finally, in 1920, with the unification of the Polish currency, the denomination "F" was removed & the cards were valid for use in the whole of Poland.

1920 9 Mar. Warsaw to France. Int. postcard rate was 20f so 5 centimes Post-due applied in France


This is a simplified overview of the cards, they come in shades of red, carmine & rose, as well as 3 different types of horizontal dotted lines, thin, thick or a combination of thick & thin. My 10 year-old Fischer catalogues yours at 70zloty, current market value is $10-15.

Any info on this sheet, other than is what is obvious?
Does it attract a catalogue listing anywhere?
Thanks

Czeslaw Slania, the world's greatest stamp engraver. He just happened to be Polish.

I have the blue sheet & saw the brown version many years ago, quibbled about the price, I may have been a trifle petulant & didn't buy it. One of life's many regrets.

There are several catalogues of his work, the latest being published by Fischer of Polish stamp catalogue fame, but no prices listed. For the postage stamps he engraved any old catalogue will do, but for the numerous cinderellas he prodeced, the market place rules.

The "Polphilex 66" sheets, souvenir folders, covers etc. are listed in the catalogue "Polish and Commemorative Service in G.B 1941-2003" by A.J.M. Tutak.

This credits the design of the sheets to M.W. Zebrowski, A. Gaj-Celinski and Cz. Slania and the design of the datestamp on the covers to M. Paszkiewicz.

Not quite. There's a diacritical accent through both "l's" in his name (doesn't show up on this forum). This softens a hard "l" to a soft "w".

So his name is actually pronounced Chesswav Swania (rhymes with "Tanya")

It's one of a set of 6, shown on pages 32-33 (AOZ/105 - AOZ/110) of this list:

Hopefully someone proficient in Polish can tell us what this list is all about.
