Online Auction Description
Poland 1923 issue, 50 Marka deep red violet, charity label not listed in Scott's Catalog.
This stamp was affixed to the back of the envelope, much like Christmas seals of today. This is a great stamp for a topical collection of cinderellas, and also for the study of Polish history.
Note: In 1923, the Polish treasury was short of gold and silver to back up its currency. The following stamps were issued in the nature of charity (fund raising) labels. They were purchased at face value and affixed to mail. The income received, was used by the treasury to buy gold and silver from abroad.
