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
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
8.4 The nearest image I have found so far (Mach 2007) to the
Moldova #1 is the 81 parale SG3.
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
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
