re: 3 beautiful Israel stamp sheets

Very very nice. Thanks for sharing! What is the strip at the bottom of each one? They're not denominated like the rest. Are they stamps that are valid for postage?

Those are labels (called "tabs" in Scott and elsewhere) which are common to Israeli stamps. There is usually a premium for MNH stamps with "tab" attached.

Thanks Bobby, yeah I looked these up on www.stampworld.com and I kept seeing "+ tabs" with another value. Makes sense now.

Yes, it gives more value to the stamp if you have the tab with it. However , if i'm correct cinderellas don't have tabs?

re: 3 beautiful Israel stamp sheets

I don't know of other countries besides Israel that have tabs; some stamps of Czechoslavakia, Bohemia, and Slovakia have something similar, but usally BETWEEN pairs rather than at edge of a sheet. German mini sheets have intricate selvege, but i don't think it's considered tabs.

As to Cinderellas, American Lung has long issued sheets with tabs, but they serve very different purposes than the Israeli tabs. But ALA's Christmas seals and other ephemera is only one miniscule aspect of Cinderellas, of which there must be Sagan-like billions and billions.
