They are entitled: "Private Mail of Minister Ilg" well....the name sounds somehow "Ethiopian" - isn't it? In fact it was a Swissy.....Ilg is a pretty familiar name here in the East region..... BUT it took me some googeling to find out - now I know: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Ilg

One very handsome value is a SoSoS as it reproduces Ethiopia #274, which reproduces a modified Ethiopia #1 with a changed value and color. Ethiopia # is the same design in a dark blue, but showing a #1 for a postal anniversary makes more sense to me, so I went with that way back in 1967 when I created my first check list, thinking I had discovered Stamps on Stamps! This was part of a set to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Ethiopian Postal Service in 1944, and that too was issued belatedly, in 1947.
Another value probably reproduces Ethiopian stamps as it reproduces two cacheted covers, but the scan is too poor to identify them-- a better scan or the actual stamp may help. All the values have a perfed label noting the anniversary.
This was a nice surprise issue, and not too expensive either.
