An interesting story lies behind these.

Stamp 2: Arbe (Rab in Serbo-Croat) is an island off the coast of Croatia, and now part of that country, but after the First World War the Italian-speaking residents wanted the island to become part of Italy. Instead it became part of Yugoslavia until during WW2 when the Italians installed a concentration camp thereon.

Stamp 3: San Marino Fascists were going to celebrate 20 years of fascism, but the series of stamps was never issued due to the fall of Mussolini

Stamp 1: The fall of the fascists on 28th July 1943 was commemorated using the overprint.

Stamp 4: The creation of a provisional post-fascist government was commemorated using a different overprint.

Hi Kathy,
I don't have too many stamps from San Marino but I've always been very fond of the bird set issued in 1972.

Image

By the way, the last stamp you showed is not from San Marino, but from Spain. As it says on the stamp, it has 'sin valor postal', meaning it has no postal validity. These were labels produced by the Reverend Father Sancho in the Spanish city of Zaragoza. He sold those to raise funds. I believe they date from the Civil War period, say mid thirties to mid forties.

On September 3, 1937 a heroic bust of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln which San Marino had commissioned from American sculptor Raymond Granville Barger (1906-2001) was unveiled, and a national holiday was celebrated. Here is an image of one of two similar souvenir sheets, engraved and printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co., and issued by San Marino on April 7, 1938 to commemorate the inauguration of Barger's sculpture, Scott No. 186, plus a detail image of the stamp and a photo of the bust.

Actually it is the Italian Winged Wheel watermark. This changed first to the Italian stars and then in 1961 to a special San Marino postmark showing three feathers which gives the specialist collector a variety of orientations, some very rare.

I do have a soft spot for San Marino, probably dating back to the '60's short sets I used to buy from Seven Seas and Rocket stamps. They looked so purty to a 12 year old. I just wished that they sold the complete set, and not short sets, although for 6d a pack, I couldn't complain

Here is San Marino No. 1

Image

And a '60's set (complete) which is typical of what caused my youthful now faded self to fall in love with them.
