Hi all rcsd users

I have some test stamps in my collection (there are stamp used for testing
stamp purpoises).

For french stamps http://cjoint.com/?0CypSKph1nB , the Catalogue des
Vignettes Exp rimentales by G rard Gomez, make referencies and cotations.

For US stamps  http://cjoint.com/?0Cyp7gWJLf4  , it's the Scott Specialized
Stamps and Covers.

But for english = http://cjoint.com/?0CypvbAKLOz

or swedish = 3 booklets  http://cjoint.com/?0CypNLHkS79 and interior
http://cjoint.com/?0CypPT9wNb4

or swiss stamps =  http://cjoint.com/?0CypA6o0EM6 and
http://cjoint.com/?0CypCe69dPj

What catalogues do I use ?

Many thanks.

Usually classed as Cinderellas, I don't think there's a full
'catalogue' of them.

Thanks Sir F.A. Rien for these informations.

In fact, these stamps are not really Cinderellas.

My opinion is that Cinderellas are often advertising labels. While these
Test Stamps are connected to Post Stamps because they serve to adjust and to
test the postal purposes, without destroying real Postal Stamps.
They are rather classified in "Back of the Book", such as Tax Stamps,
Precancelled Stamps or Training Stamps ......

For the interested people, there is a Wikipedia page on this subject =

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test_stamp

and many other Web sites =

Best regards.

And sorry for my approximative or very bad english .... If you want to
correct my errors of language, it should be very fun for me.

Correct in that they are of 'official' use, however, they are
generally not recognized by the 'official' catalogues, but are
included in the 'Cinderella' sales.
