Paper Heritage : ALGERIA : Railway Parcel Stamps (List 1)


General Introduction

Numbering / Catalogues
I have used Yvert numbers for identification, although other catalogues, such as Dallay and Dudoy, have much to add to any listing of Algerian Railway Parcel Post stamps. Using the correct numbering by Yvert, I should use the prefix CP (colis postal) before each stamp but, for ease of reading, I have not done so. If ordering Algeria from another dealer's list, make sure you do not order normal postage stamps in error!

CONTROLE overprints
With the exception of the very first few stamps (Yvert 1-6, more correctly CP1-6, which have no overprint), all the parcel post stamps should have been issued with a machine overprint CONTROLE REPARTITEUR, CONTROLE or CONTROLE DES RECETTES, the overprint varying in words and style for each issue; I refer to any style of overprint simply as 'Control' in my lists; only one style was applied to each stamp, with the exception of a few non-pictorials and these, helpfully, are given separate catalogue numbers.

This overprint would have been a revenue protection measure, presumably because the printing and/or the storage of these stamps was not considered secure. Stamps, especially the later pictorial types, are frequently found with this overprint omitted. In some cases, these are quite common (and in my opinion are often overpriced compared to the same stamps with control in some catalogues) but for other values, missing 'control' is either rare or completely unknown.

The Control colour is usually violet to violet-grey but other colours are encountered and they are both interesting and quite often, curiously, ignored by catalogues. Unless otherwise stated, controls are both present and in this range of colour in my sales list below, but, anyway, you will have scans to verify this for yourself.

Used copies of many of these stamps are highly elusive and this scarcity seems to increase the later the stamp is issued.

Varieties are plentiful and fascinating. In particular, the Gare de Bne stamps with their combination of two distinct colours (the darker blue is generally much scarcer), buildings in the background clear, unclear or completely missing, constant flaws to some values, control present or absent and, then, added to this, multiple surcharges on many of them, with one or more surcharges sometimes misplaced, provide plenty of opportunity for those who enjoy a detailed study.

How to Order
How to order: Please copy and paste the whole line of text when ordering. Only the Scan Ref at the end of each listed item clearly identifies which stamp you are ordering, so it is vital that the full 'Scan Ref' is included with EVERY item you order.

When a listing is marked =-= next to the price, it indicates that we have more than one example in stock and that you may receive a very similar stamp to the one illustrated. Any stamp which is not 100% satisfactory may, of course, be returned for a refund, or a replacement where available. Where no such =-= symbol is shown, you will receive the illustrated stamp.

Illustrations on THIS page
Important: At the top of each group of the pictorial types, I have provided a scan of every basic value in the set, identified by its Yvert number. These are not stamps which are available for purchase, but a method of identification for those who do not have a catalogue for these issues. Please click on each listed item for a scan of stamps for sale.

Imperforate Stamps
Most of the pictorial types exist imperforate. However, there are several differences between the Yvert, Dallay and Dudoy catalogues over the existence of imperforate example of each value. Provided a stamp has been listed in at least one of these catalogues as existing Imperforate, I have accepted this as correct. I have noted the existence, or otherwise, of imperforate stamps under each sample scan on this page.

Scan of Yvert 98-109
Yvert 98-109 (these are manuscript surcharges - Algiers issue). Imperfs : Only one, Yvert 104, has been reported to exist Imperf.

Yvert 98-109 : Various with Manuscript Surcharges
Mint manuscript surcharges on the market come mostly from the work of a single clerk in Algiers, assigned to produce them. However, at a few other locations, other employees, working within their authority, also surcharged these stamps manually and, so far as I know, these are only ever found used, the postmark identifying the office at which they were surcharged. Only small, and often very tiny, quantities are know thus surcharged at other offices.

The two are illustrated below:
