Return To Catalogue - Switzerland overview

In 1912 3 labels for the Children Welfare fund were issued, however, they are not stamps, inscription in German, French or Italian: 'Viel Sonnenschein im neuen Jahr!', 'Soleil et sante a tous!', 'Un'anno di sole!' (all in different colours):

I know that the forger Peter Winter has made forgeries of at least the red label, examples:


(Peter Winter forgery)
