Germany Revenue Stamp Project

Germany Revenue Stamp Project

We are working on a new series of revenue stamp catalogues for Germany, to continue the tradition set by the pioneer, the late Martin Erler. These will be in our standard A4 3-column format, illustrated in full colour, and with current pricing.

For Germany, the books will be in 3 parts :
Part 1 : German States (including issues by the Länder from 1872-1945)
Part 2 : German Reich 1872-1945 (including Colonies, Plebiscites, Occupations, and III Reich period organisation/Party membership stamps)
Part 3 : Postwar (Zones, West Germany, DDR, and modern issues to Euro denomination)
Work on Part II is nearly complete. Work is progressing on the other two parts. Keep an eye on this site for more news shortly.

Work in Progress

We are looking for help with some sections. Some old black/white illustrations could be improved by colour scans (at 300 dpi, with the stamp on a black background to show the perfs, would be ideal). Also, for some sections, new finds are expected and any additions from collectors would be welcomed by your editor. Some sample sections, plus offers of stock for direct sale, are shown below.
