FRANCE - RARE COLLECTION OF NEW YEAR'S DAY CANCELLATIONS, difficult to collect: a collector's life's work (Yvert pages 172-173. During the New Year period, post offices were inundated with business cards in envelopes, followed in the early 20th century by greeting postcards. To cope with this huge seasonal and exceptional workload, users were asked to hand in their items well in advance, particularly for bulk mailings, so that the post office could process them to the best of its staff's available time. In such cases, the Paris post offices used cancellations withdrawn from service, which were used exceptionally to cancel stamps ... 161 (one hundred and sixty-one) different stamps in the TYPES SAGE (n° 75 + 102 + 85), BLANC (111 green, 111 green-blue + 107), SEMEUSE (137 + 138 + 131), MOUCHON (117). ALL TYPES OF OBLITERATIONS: numerals in a circle (no. 1 to 120) large numerals various numbers, anchor, framed PP, Roman numerals, linear claw, box stamps. Remarkable and rare collection, all well-marked, the fruit of sorting several tens of thousands of stamps in bundles over 50 years of philately.
