[Cinderella] Public & Mayflower Mail Services

Post by lotus 194 »

Hi

If you are thinking of taking up collecting strike stamps, might I suggest you start with the 1971 Mayflower issues. Firstly they are plentiful and cheap to give your collection a good start and a complete collection can be worth a pretty penny. Not a great deal is known regarding the issuer of these stamps (by me anyway). They must have been widely used as there are plenty out there of both FDC's and normal covers used for mail purposes.

The stamps appear to be broken up into several groups as follows:

1. Public Mail Service (24 stamps) - UK delivery
2. Europa Mail Service (5 stamps) - Mainland Europe
3. United Nations Service (4 stamps) - Mainland Europe
4. Council of Europe Service (1 stamp) - Mainland Europe
5. Mail Service to Germany (2 stamps) - Germany vis West Berlin
6. Europa Service Commemoratives (33 stamps) - Mainland Europe
7. The Mayflower Mail Service (32 stamps) - USA and Canada
8. Mail to Japan (2 stamps) - Japan
9. Mail to Israel (4 stamps) - Israel
10. UK Special Delivery (5 stamps) - Middle Eat, Africa, USA & Asia

As always I am always appreciative on any additional information on these or any postal strike stamps.
