Click on Image to Magnify
Stefan Berger and I are looking for examples of ALLAVERDI TIFL cancels on cover or on loose stamps during the period 1914 - 1924. We are interested in all serials and types. If you can help, please send me a scan at firstname.lastname@example.org
The example above is on a 1914 card from the Peter Ashford collection.
Update 31 July 2014: Thanks to Thomas Berger for this magnificent cover:
The cover is from the cooper mines at Allaverdi to the copper mines at Katarsky Zavod [ Giriusy, Zangezur]. They were both operated by the same Belgian company where the philatelist Gustave Boel worked as a mining engineer.
Update 5 March: Thanks to Vasilis Opsimos for this better 1915 example:
Update 24 May: Thanks to Howard Weinert for scans of the item below:
