Article 415: France Sower Definitives

The France Sower (Semeuse in French) definitives are some of the most common stamps of the early 20th century. Almost every cover posted in France during the first three decades of the 20th century bears at least one of these stamps. This is a small selection of the cameo type that came into use in 1907.
