Stamp Day 

#1 Inside #B1019: Bavaria #1O

The stamp shows one of the most famous letters of German philately - the Eichstaett (Oaktown) letter. Discovered in 1959 in the Upper Bavarian Eichstaett and is equipped with a six-block of the first German postage stamp - the black ones ("schwarzer Einser") of the Kingdom of Bavaria. These stamps released on 1 November 1849.

"Black ones" are very rare.

The Ten sheets of this edition has a "security perforation"  between each pair of a horizontal pair in the form of an oak leaf. This means, that there are 2 types of stamps - one with the "hole" right, one left - as shown.

There are brands , such Spezialstanzung on the left or the right face.

In addition there is a nice postal stationery with the same stamp printed thereof, also with the "hole" for no reason. At left is a painting "Der Posthof 1850" (mail court) by Pius A.F.Messerschmitt

The stamp design by Ursula Lautenschlager pictures four issues of the postal district of the North German Confederation. The confederation was established in 1867 following the Second Schleswig War of 1864 pitting Prussia against Denmark, and the 1866 Austro-Prussian War.

King Wilhelm I and Prussian minister president Otto von Bismarck created the confederation dominated by Prussia, unifying the 22 German states north of the Main River.

Postal laws for the confederation went into effect on Jan. 1, 1868, but because a unified currency had not been established, typographed stamps using three different currencies were issued.

The northern district used the thaler for currency, with 30 groschen equaling 1 thaler. Six stamps denominated ¼gr, ⅓gr, ½gr, 1gr, 2gr and 5gr were issued. The text-only design reads “Norddeutscher Postbezirk” (North German Postal District) inside a round double ring (Scott 1-6).

The southern district used the gulden, with 60 kreuzer equaling 1 gulden. Stamps denominated 1kr, 2kr, 3kr, 7kr and 18kr were issued for the southern district (Scott 7-11). The “Norddeutscher Postbezirk” inscription on these stamps appears within an oval.

The four classic issues shown on the new German Stamp Day stamp are the 1gr rose at upper left, 7kr ultramarine at upper right, 1kr green at lower left, and ½gr orange at lower right. Not shown on the new stamp is an example of the third currency variety, a single nondenominated (½-schilling) lilac brown stamp issued in 1868 for use in Hamburg (Scott 12).

The rouletted stamps for all three regions are also known imperforate. Perforated varieties were issued in 1869, and Official stamps for government use appeared in 1870.

The southern German states of Baden, Bavaria, Hesse and Wurttemberg joined with the North German Confederation as France declared war on Prussia. With the French defeat in 1871, the German Empire was declared by Bismarck in Versailles, with Wilhelm I as kaiser (emperor).

AMG Issues - 1945

Shortly after the fall of the Third Reich, the Bizone, or the Allied Military Government (AMG) of the United States and Great Britain, was established. This zone issued the following series of stamps for civilian use in the occupation areas of West Germany that were under its control.

There were three different printings of these 1945 stamps. The earlier printings were the Washington and London Printings (March - September). The later printing was the Brunswick (Germany) Printing (August - December).

The military governments of the Soviet and French occupation zones issued their own postage stamps during 1945.

Lou wrote: The Germany October 6 new issues for Stamp Day are strangely designed. The stamp and souvenir sheet show the famous and rare1851 Baden color paper error, where the 9 k value was printed on green paper instead of the correct pink. It is assumed the printer had the 9 k plate upside down in hand, misread it for a 6 and so printed it on a sheet of the green paper used for that value. Whatever quality control there was then did not catch it, and in fact, the error remained undiscovered for 44 years until found by a stamp collector!

 

On the new issues, the designer has the green error stamp inverted so that the large numeral appears as a 6, and in the margin of the souvenir sheet an example of the correct 9 k on pink paper is reversed so that it also appears as a 6, and the inscription is also inverted. Very odd, but possibly to show how the error could have happened. 

 

I also think that the addition of the bar code, now showing up on more and more stamps and needed for modern electronic mail processing, hurts the artistry of the stamp.  Maybe they can create an invisible to the eye bar code only "seen" by the sorter--like the tagged stamps we had for years.

Lou wrote: The QR codes have been around for some time now, and yes, they seem to be getting bigger, and take away from the artistry of the stamp. They seem to be important to the posts in their processing of the mails, so perhaps the design of the stamp is secondary to them.  In many cases, the code can also contain info about the stamp. Have any of you put your camera phone to one and read what it said?  Back in 2012, the $5 Hong Kong stamp had a QR code that opened to a page about the 150th anniversary of Hong Kong stamps, but is gone now.

One nice thing about stamp collecting is that you can collect what you like, so if these added codes annoy you, don't buy them. However, I think that you, and other collectors, should advise the posts of your unhappiness with the prominence of the codes.
