Sinn Fein Propaganda Labels
A rare full sheet of “Celtic Cross” Sinn Fein Propaganda Labels, c. 1916. A printed sheet of 72 stamps (8 columns x 9 rows), with blank edging some gaps, glued back.
*Extremely Rare, particularly in blocks. Each label depicts a Celtic Cross with ringed centre, inscribed “Eire” & “Sinn Fein” & decorated with shamrocks. These labels were first printed in 1908 with the intention of attaching them to all Sinn Fein Correspondence on the opposite side to the British postage stamp, as a visible sign of Irish Nationalism, & to raise funds for the Sinn Fein cause.
