Table 10

Notes:
10.1 Scott precedes
Jamaica #1 with many overprints of GB stamps (largely of Scott #20, 21, 26, 27, 28) with individual local cancellations. These are dated 1858-60 and numbered A1 through A172. For the first Jamaican stamp set Scott specifies the 1d blue of 1860, SG8. The first occurrence of the d red (Sc13 / SG7; 12 / 3.50) is dated by Scott as 1872.
10.2 Liberia Airmail. The three expensive February 1936 overprints (ScC1-C3, SG526, 527, 525) were followed in September the same year by the first real airmail, Sc-C3a / SG530 depicting the Ford Tin Goose.
10.3 Liberia Charity / Semi-Postal. Scott starts in 1915 with a 2c + 3c overprint on the 1912 Sc127, itself a 3c on 10c overprint. Mackay and Gibbons specify the 1918 issue, B3.
10.4 Malta Sc1 (SG3), 1863 differs from Sc2 (SG1), 1860 only in that the former is on white paper and the latter on blued. Both are outside my price range: Sc1 550 / 275, Sc2 850 / 425.
10.5 Scott also dates the Malta self-government overprint of the d brown (Sc86 SG114) as 1922. I'll get both as they are inexpensive.
10.6 There is no real Malta airmail until the C3-C8 set in 1974
10.7 Queensland Commemorative. This is the only 1903 stamp listed in Scott and Gibbons. It is not clear what it is commemorating.
10.8 Queensland Charity - South African War Charity, inscribed Patriotic Fund 1900. The stamp was denominated 1 penny but sold for 1 shilling.
10.9 Mackay dates Sierra Leone #1 as 1860, Scott and Gibbons as 1859.
10.10 Mackay has two listing for Poland, beginning in 1860  and 1918. I think this is an error. It is arguably worth showing the second real Polish stamp series of 1919, after a series of German and Austro-Hungarian overprints, but otherwise the two listings overlap. There are also local issues, during the occupation, from Warsaw, Lublin and Cracow.
10.11 The only difference between St. Lucia Charity 1 and 2 is that on #1 the WAR TAX overprint is split over two lines, on #2 it is on one line: that and 8. I came across #2 first and am in no rush for #1.

Table 11

Notes:
11.1 Greece has the finest early airmail stamps in the world, see here.
11.2 Both catalogues have two charity stamps connected with WW1, the 2 lepta red (Sc-RA1 / SG-C269 25p / 25p) which Scott dates as 1918 and the 5l blue (Sc-RA2 / SG270 40p / 40p) dated 1914.
11.3 Prince Edward Island #1 is fully prices at 250 / 120, particularly bearing in mind that the same stamp was produced later on different papers. The
is the 1863 Sc5 SG12 at 10 / 10 on yellowish paper. There is also the 1870 SG28  (no Sc) on bluish paper at 6 / 9.
11.4 St Vincent
d orange (Sc24 / SG36) and d green (Sc35 / SG47) are dated 1881 and 1884 by Scott.
11.5 Gibbons Bergedorf #1 is a schilling black on violet priced at 375. Scott only distinguishes between blue and pale blue.
11.6 British Columbia and Vancouver Island Sc1 was not issues, and that is what happened to the unlisted Sg1. A stamp was issued for British Columbia and Vancouver Island in 1860, the Sc2 SG2. Vancouver Island seems to have converted currency first as a separate colony and so had its own cents issue in 1865, numbered Sc3, SG11, so then Sc7, SG21 was an issue just for British Colombia.  The two colonies combined in 1866.

11.7 For Grenada #1, Scott has the 1d green, which is SG2. Scott's Sc 1a blue green is SG1 and catalogues at 4,500 / 300. Well done Scott.
