1895 5c Inside #681: Uganda Type A1 “5” – see note

Lou wrote: your scan you show for Uganda #681 is incorrect. The designer intended to show what was then listed for many years in the catalogs as Uganda # 1, a 5 cowries (black ribbon) typewritten stamp—when he couldn’t find one to copy he created it, not knowing such a stamp did not exist.  Thru the efforts of George Holschauer of Colonial Stamp Co., here in the U.S., the stamp was finally deleted from the major catalogs and Scott, instead of just keeping the number as is, without a #1, renumbered all the Uganda typewritten stamps.  I had a small part in this, as George had contacted me a “knowledgeable” stamp on stamp collector to ask if I knew the source of the reproduced stamp, as he had long believe it did not exist.  I wrote back that I felt it was an artist’s representation and agreed the stamp was never issued.

Most likely, the erroneous listing occurred when cataloguers noted the 5 cowries stamps in the two narrower settings (Sc #17, #26) and assumed the wider setting must exist also. Your scan is probably Sc #35 which was produced using a violet ribbon. 

In my database, I have: Uganda Designer artwork for non-existent 5 cowries value, once thought to be "# 1".

Scan not available Inside #1214 (In Margin): US Rattlesnake Island Local Stamp

Local stamps are used to pay for the transport of mail from an island or place (that has no branch of the national Post Office) to the nearest branch of the national Post Office or to the nearest Post Office in another country. National stamps are also attached so that the mail can be delivered by the national Post Office system or internationally. Local stamps in the past were often attached to the back of an envelope, nowadays they are usually attached to the left front (the top right front is usually reserved for national stamps). This kind of local post is available to the general public on the island or place. Examples - Christmas Island (Pacific Ocean), Herm, Hustadvika, Kaulbach Island, Rattlesnake Island etc. These are genuine local posts as they provide a real need for a small population and the stamps and covers are very collectable. http://www.stampshows.com/local-post.html

Rattlesnake Island, Ohio, in southwestern Lake Erie (about twenty miles north-west of Sandusky), gets its mail service via a private plane. From 1966 to 1989, the carrier created his own stamps and postmarks, which some collectors pursue.

The most delightful episode of the history of Rattlesnake Island Local Post occurred in 1967, when The Huntley-Brinkley Report, a popular TV news show of the day, did a spot about the carrier's initial difficulties getting USPS approval for his stamps and cancels, casting the island's owners as David fighting Goliath. The spot was picked up by Budapest TV, which turned the story into a fantasy about modern American revolutionaries fighting their capitalist oppressors (Hungary was under Communist control at the time), with the bizarre result that the island received CARE packages from Hungary for several months! Keep in mind that the owners at the time were a group of doctors and stockbrokers who bought it for a vacation retreat. http://alphabetilately.com/L.html

Lou wrote: For Uganda #1442 you list Uganda #59 which is incorrect.  Per Scott, the stamp would have a large “L” overprint and the sos does not. 

The correct stamp— one rupee on yellow paper without the overprint-- is Uganda #67. I have never seen a photo or scan that matches the number of and sizes of the vertical separation lines on the reproduced stamp, but I have read that there are very many variations and real “typos” since typing up the sheet of stamps had to be a monotonous job, so I guess it could exist

Lou wrote: The Benin and Rwanda SOS are from unlisted s/s and are illegal issues. After a search, I found both in sites of dealers that specialize in such material. On one site, most offers have the following statement:  NOTE: THESE STAMP-LIKE LABELS WILL BE LISTED BY THE UPU AS ILLEGAL AND UNAUTHORIZED ISSUES. WE OFFER THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE ON THE MARKET, AND WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU BUY THEM ONLY IF YOU LIKE THEM. I'd bet that the Uganda source was also the producers of the Benin and Rwanda issues.

The two Viet Nam stamps are dated 1988, but were issued in 1989.
