Lou wrote: This is an odd one. The black stamp which shows the country name, 10 laree value and design of a beach scene does not exist, but why the designer went to such an effort to create such a small, weird pseudo stamp is a good question when the Maldives does not lack for stamps issued!

The identifiable stamp fits into my "Design Component" category as it reproduces only the stamped envelope from Maldives Sc #921-3. This is another odd choice, as the Maldives #5 on an airmail envelope is a grievous designer error for many reasons: the colonial stamp of 1906 was withdrawn from use and had no franking value and even if it was valid, it would not pay for airmail service--and, from a collector's standpoint, it would be a waste of a scarce, valuable stamp!

The Scout Post stamp with the special Scout delivery hand stamp as reproduced in the stamp

Lou wrote: many collectors consider the two scout stamps to be the first stamps of Czechoslovakia, as they were authorized by the new provisional Czech government and were used to deliver official mail in Prague over a month before the Hradcany definitives were issued. The only thing against recognizing them as such, especially by Scott, was that they were only for local mail.

Lou Guadagno wrote: The individual German stamps you show are not the stamps reproduced in the margin of the S/S. Note they are a se tenant block, so instead of the stamps of 1935, they are a "cut out" of one of the Olympic S/S issued in 1936--Sc #B91, see scan.  The sheets had very large margins and were delicate, so the blocks of stamps from damaged sheets were "rescued", also in 1936, S/S were still a bit of a novelty and many collectors removed the stamp blocks so they would fit in their albums and on covers.  You find the cut out blocks offered from time to time on eBay and Delcampe.
