Black Cats

These appeared as envelope decoration when the Fourth Year Anniversary stamps for the Cinderella Stamps Forum were dispatched.  Colin has stated they are not stamps, but were used to test batches of paper with printing processes to see if a dark image would show detail, vivid text and smaller detailed text.  They are based on a vintage French design for Black Cat cigarettes.  They were nicknamed ‘catastrophes’.  All are found only in used condition.
