The next postage due issue was issued in 1932 (picture of a Newfoundland dog) with inscripton 'CHIFFRE TAXE'.


Miscellaneous

Due to a lack of stamps of 30 c in 1926, an overprint was applied 'GOUVERNEMENT P.P. 030 SAINT PIERRE MIQUELON ST PIERRE' on envelopes for France, example:

This overprint was used in end of April and begin Mai 1926. The date 30-6-26 seems quite late on the above piece. Similar envelopes with '0 05' instead of '0 30' exist. Also similar envelopes with only 'PP' in the center:


('PP' only, reduced size)
