Inside #98-100: Stamps on Envelopes

The first commemorative Swiss stamps appeared in 1900, celebrating the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union (UPU).  Only three commemorative stamp sets were issued during the period from 1900 to 1924, but as far as philatelic complexity, two of these issues are real whoppers!

True, Switzerland has issued a LOT of definitive stamps for day-to-day usage on letter mail.  But as far as special stamp issues, Switzerland has always been very conservative, and they remain so to this day.  Generally, the annual postage stamp output of Switzerland consists of one Pro Juventute (charity) set, one Pro Patria (charity) set, and maybe a limited number of commemorative Swiss stamps.  This makes collecting the modern stamps of a country much more manageable, as opposed to some other countries' output of over a hundred issues every year, with most of them having never been seen or used by the general public in those countries. https://www.stamp-collecting-world.com/swissstamps_1900c.html

The Double Geneva of Switzerland ranks as one of the world's rarest stamps. The stamp joins two 5 cent stamps and in a rectangle above the text '10. PORT CANTONAL. CENT. The stamps bear Geneva's Coat of Arms on the crest of which is an IHS within a sunburst. The arms were repeated on the following and commemorative issues.

150th Anniversary: Tübli Letters

 Inside #????: TBI

"Tübli letters” was the name given by collectors to the rst covers of the federal postal system pre-franked with a printed stamp. They came out in 1867, after the Geneva Post Of ce had begun issuing pre-franked products. The of cial issue date of the “Tübli letters” was 1 July 1867. Prior to that, though, cov- ers were sold to customers and also can- celled at a number of post of ces.

The miniature sheet shows the “Zweisim- men rst day cover” in the background, one of the few remaining pieces from the of cial rst day. It displays all four values of the rst issue in a fan arrangement. The stamp itself focuses on the 10-centime value of the Zweisimmen letter cancelled on the issue date.

A detail of the address written with a quill sends the observer on a journey back in time to the 19th century. The optical quality of the yellowed paper was deliberately chosen as a stylistic me- dium. The nostalgic aura is subtly en- hanced with modern typography. The gold font lends the special stamp the unique characteristic worthy of a 150th anniversary. 

Thanks to Attilio Papio

Helvetia 2022 World Stamp Exhibition

 Inside #????: Switzerland type A18 (pic of #42P)

Switzerland is inviting visitors to attend the HELVETIA 2022 World Stamp Exhibition, which will take place from 18 to 22 May at the Padiglione Conza fairground and convention center in Lugano. The famous seated Helvetia, who is celebrating her 160th anniversary, is being honoured. This is the second miniature sheet to be issued at HELVETIA 2022. It is dedicated to the major anniversary of the seated Helvetia, the legendary stamp first issued in 1862, which was the first to bear the lettering “Helvetia” and also Switzerland’s first perforated stamp. This latter fact is presented using an elegant effect on the left margin of the miniature sheet. The seated Helvetia herself is looking forwards – into the future. Both respectful of tradition and elegant, it invites the world to visit Lugano.

Thanks to Martin Hirschbühl
