Guinea stamps

P=have O=don’t have it

Flag of Guinea

Guinea, officially Republic of Guinea, is a nation in West Africa, formerly known as French Guinea. Guinea's territory has a curved shape, with its base at the Atlantic ocean, inland to the east, and turning south. The base borders Guinea-Bissau and Senegal to the north, and Mali to the north and north-east; the inland part borders Côte d'Ivoire to the south-east, Liberia to the south, and Sierra Leone to the west of the southern tip. It encompasses the water source of the Niger, Senegal, and Gambia rivers. The name Guinea is used for the region of most of Africa's west coast south of the Sahara desert and north of the Gulf of Guinea. Guinea is sometimes called Guinea-Conakry per its capital, to differentiate it from the neighboring Guinea-Bissau (whose capital is Bissau).

Inside #1108A-D: Self, on cover

Simplified, modified:  inscription panels in white, not color—intended as Mali stamp?

Lou wrote: Here’s another from “The Smallest Stamps on Stamps” article folder. I think it took me about 15 years to get this set, so I could confirm the IDs— I know I didn’t have them for the 2000 SOSCU master list. Before then, I had tentatively identified them from a French stamp magazine illustration as “Self SOS” and, tho tiny, simplified and modified, that’s what they turned out to be—the basic design is reproduced, the only modification is that the two inscription panels are white instead of colored (see the detail scan).

 

Since I also collect Postal Markings on Stamps, I took a close look at the tiny postmark too, and that’s where the design became interesting.  For some reason, the designer showed the Guinea “Self” stamps with a BAMOKO, MALI, 7-11-88 cancel—which is taking the inscribed “Post Without Borders” motto to an extreme!  The envelope is addressed to someone in Conakry, Guinea. Another thought I had, since this was an anniversary which should have been commemorated by the other Union members, is that the design was meant to be an omnibus issue that never happened.

Lou wrote: This is one I've known about for a long time, but had no stamp or scan-- or idea on how to describe the issue!  

There are 16 stamps with se-tenant labels being offered for this issue, but the Scott's catalogue only lists a single stamp # and only illustrates the stamp without a label.

I questioned them about this and I just got a reply from one of the Scott's catalog editors. Altho they weren't aware that 16 different pairs existed, their position is that there is only one value stamp and that the labels do not matter as far as listing. They also do not give a purpose of the issue, only noting the design is Ferris Wheels on Film.

I have not been able to find any information about this issue, but in examining the stamp and the labels, I have come up with the following: firstly, the design is not two Ferris Wheels but two different pictures of the London Eye observation wheel taken during the Millennium New Year fireworks celebration, and secondly, since the 16 labels illustrate historical people and events of the previous 100 years, I listed it as commemorating "The 20th Century".

It is not #C18 (with an 85F value), but an unissued 87F value with the identical design, which is very rare and expensive (see scan). According to an auction catalog, the stamp was printed for an expected rate increase that was canceled and the 85F was issued in its place; however, a sheet of 50 87F stamps were released in error.

The Switzerland stamp – A mystery

In the beginning Lou wrote: "I had contacted the Swiss philatelic bureau re the stamp with “Grock the Clown”.  Even tho it is plainly inscribed HELVETIA, I couldn’t find it, and they just advised it is NOT a Swiss stamp.  I thought it was a stamp I had seen before, so when I didn’t find it in Switzerland, I searched “Clowns” and “Circus” with no luck. Very strange."

I was sure that I saw that stamp before. I looked for it and found the scan with no reference.

Lou wrote: "I never received a reply from Switzerland. It is very possible that it was a stamp essay by a designer/printer that was never adopted, or it was produced by one of the printers to show their techniques. Grock the clown was very popular in Europe and was a “natural” for a stamp subject. I have noticed that the designer of these Guinea/Guinea Bissau/St Tome issues has added an unusual item from time to time, which shows a wide knowledge and access to such material".

This is still a mystery – if you have any information or ideas please let us know….
