Germany - Official Stamps from Inflation Era


This is a messy page, and eventually I'll reorganize it. Some of these are very scarce. Two of them may not be what they seem. I'm still working on that issue. The two billion mark stamp might have a faked overprint. I've compared it to others I know to be genuine, and I have unresolved questions. I'm watching an authenticated one at auction. I have similar questions about the ten billion mark stamp. The Dienstmark overprints seem to be too thick, the final 'e' misshaped and the cancellations seem to be washed out. The problem with these concerns is that I can find similar problems on authenticated examples. It'll give me something to do on days I must vegetate.
