image France, The Decaris Marianne: Production and Use, 1960-68. This collection, presented as a five-frame exhibit, is a specialist's delight. Over 90 covers illustrate the stamp's usage, with single, solo and mixed frankings throughout. Covers originate not just from France, but from various Départments and (former) Colonies as well, including Algeria (both pre- and post-independence, the latter with varieties and errors), French Guyana, Guadeloupe, Madagascar and Martinique.

The majority of the holding, however, consists of a study of the stamp in its various formats and their printings. It begins with two imperforate deluxe essays in unadopted colors (each with a 2010 Drouet certificate), and continues with trial color essays in blocks of four (we're particularly fond of the brown-and-black) and a final-design, issued-colors deluxe proof. We're then treated to a wealth of production, printing and plate flaws, color varieties, imperforates, dated corners, paper varieties, positionals and multiples used, and much more-including a booklet wrapper for a trial printing of the stamps with anise-flavored gum (only the French!).

Usages include single- and multiple-rate letters, Special Delivery, Airmail, Pneumatic, Acknowledgement of Receipt, even unaccepted and illegal mail!
Designed by noted artist and engraver Albert Decaris and engraved by Jules Piel, the 25c Marianne was surface-printed by three-color rotary press. Issued in sheet, coil, booklet and vending machine formats (the design also used on postal cards), the stamp served for most of its lifetime to pay the domestic single-letter rate (along with rates to several other countries), though the 1965 tariff reduction saw it used mainly for domestic postcards.

Immaculately arrayed and exquisitely annotated, this is an exhibit sure to thrill the most ardent of Marianne fans. Imaged in full online.
