Table 8

Notes:
8.1  For Buenos Aires (listed under Argentina in Scott) the 1 peso brown is dated 29th April 1858, the 4 reales brown 26th Oct 1858.
8.2 The Scott (sequentially numbered) and Gibbons (differentially numbered) approaches to Naples and Sicily differ:

Scott Entity Year Sc # Gibbons entity SG
Naples 1858 1-7 Naples 1-5
Provisional Government 1860 8-9 Naples, Garibaldi Regime 8-9
Sicily 1859 10-18 Sicily 1-7
Neopolitan Provinces 1861 19-27 Neopolitan Provinces 1-25

I will show the Gibbons entities:
Naples, where both catalogues agree on the #1 as
½ grano lake
Sicily, where Scott and Gibbons sequence the ½ grano colour variants differently as Sc10, 10a and 10b and SG1 a-c. All shades are excessively priced.
Neopolitan Provinces, where the first Scott is the sensibly-priced Sc19 ( ½ tornesi green), SG2. The SG1, Sc19a blue-green variant is priced at £300 / £90.

8.3 I cannot find Cordoba in Gibbons Simplified - I'll try the specialised catalogue.
8.4 The nearest image I have found so far (Mach 2007) to the Moldova #1 is the 81 parale SG3.

Table 9

Notes:
9.1 Neither Scott nor Gibbons list a Bahamian airmail.
9.2 The first real Columbian airmail is the vastly expensive Sc-C2 of 1920 ($2,500 / $1,500), which I cannot find in Gibbons. Between then and 1932 there were numerous issues for SCADTA, which Gibbons Simplified does not list, then the first Government issues in 1932.
9.3 Colombia Scott B1 is a 1966 Red Cross 5c + 5c. Michel lists both these  charity stamps in a Zwangszuschlagsmarken (compulsory tax) section.
9.4 For New Caledonia airmail, Mackay states 1932, in which year the Sc180 and SG183 40c  marks a flight from Noumea to Paris with an overprint. Scott and Gibbons start the airmails with the 1938 issue.
9.6 Scott and Gibbons do not list a 1939 charity stamp for Venezuela. The 1942 issue commemorates the centenary of the arrival of Bolivar's ashes at Caracas, plus the Liberator's Monument Fund.
9.7 The French Colonies 1c green, Sc1 / SG1 (£18 / £20) is dated 1862 by Scott.
9.8 French Colonies airmail is regarded by Scott as a semi-postal as the surtax was for the 'general benefit of aviation'.
9.9 For Lübeck, while my Scott and Gibbons agree on the identity of the first few stamps, they disagree on the prices (the Simplified ignores shade, watermark, and perforation variations and goes with the cheapest of the group). This while the ½ schilling lilac, Scott's Lübeck #1 is shown as $375 / $1,150, Gibbons SG9 is £12 / £1,400. In Scott terms, the best value in the first set is Sc3 SG3, 2 schilling brown at £14 mint.
9.10 Michel lists a 1920 Official overprint (Mi1) for Colombia.
