Default Ident question "Pro Segovia" SS. Spain?

Wow! I'm full of questions today. As you can tell, I'm working on my
Spain. Here are a couple Souvenir sheets that I can't seem to find
listed. I have had them laying about for a few years and just don't
know what to do with them. I think they are cool. Any ideas as to
their proper place in the album?
Thanks!

Hello Wolf.
You may wish to reserve a small section for the Spanish Civil War at the end
of your Spain collection. Over time you will find many a Scott-unlisted
item to fit there. There were many "pro" issues at the time intended as
charity for the pro-xxx; in this case, the population of Segovia (between
Madrid and Valladolid). I have seen Barcelona, Valencia, Valladolid, ....
If our new friend Pedro C. is reading this he might even have a Civil War
catalogue that lists them -- can't remember the name of the book right now
to save my life.
Hope this helps.

Hello,
I've just checked 2009 and 2000 editions of Spanish Edifil catalog and
they do not list them. It is the first time I see those sheets. If possible
I'll ask a national expert when he comes from his holidays in a month or so.
They do not seem to be listed in the civil war years nor post-war years, nor
in the Beneficencia (Charity) section, so I assume they are really rare, or
not issued proofs.

Pedro

Although they are not listed here,
you can spend some time with lovely scans of Spanish sundries,
they list the Spanish Civil war, but only a few examples.
It has helped me identify a lot of weird stuff I have found,
(help as well from Tracy Barber and his Spanish knowledge)

Hi Pedro,
The only PRO.xxx stamp I ever saw coming out of Andalucia was from Seville.
It had Pro Sevilla overprinted in red diagonally (lower left to upper right)
over a darkened effigy of the Macarena - almost like a wood-cut. I was
wondering if you could please check in the Beneficencia section or your
Civil War catalogue and see if that one is listed? I would love a scan of
that particular one. Thanks in advance.

Hello Tony,
I couldn't find your stamp in my catalogs nor in my collection. However, I
found some pro XXX from Andalucía in my collection.
They are from Cadiz, Granada, Sevilla and Córdoba. I have other
"beneficencia" stamps from Melilla (Spanish city in north coast of Africa,
not a colony), some "pro tuberculosos", some "hogar de huérfanos" and other
several stamps form Barcelona of those years. I can upload scans of them at
request. These stamps I have are not in very good shape, as they come from
my father's collection, but may serve as examples. These days "XLI Spanish
National Stamp Fair" is taking place in "Plaza Mayor" here in Madrid. I will
do a visit on Sunday and see if I can find the "pro Sevilla" stamp you
mention.

Here are the links of my stamps:

Hi Tony and All.

I have found a great reference source for Spanish stamps + labels.
They currently have over 18,000 lots of Spain listed (with scans).

This covers from the earliest stamps to present, including thousands
of Spanish Civil war items.

I was today at the national stamp fair in Plaza Mayor Madrid. Not only
that stamp does not appear in catalogs, nobody knew of it, even the older
sellers, so it should not be very common. I really doubt it very much there
is a stamp shop that sells it.
