General issues for the entire Soviet zone

After the 21.6. The currency reform carried out in the three western zones in 1948, which led to a break between the Soviet military administration and the other Allies, the SMA set its own currency reform for June 24, 1948, which affected both the SBZ and the entire area of Greater Berlin a castle. From that day on, the post offices were no longer allowed to sell any of the old stamps in Reichsmark currency, but those in the hands of the post users remained valid for 1/10 of their postage value until July 31, 1948.
Since on June 24, 1948 no uniform edition in new currency was available (these only started on June 29 with the machine print edition no. 182-197) and could not be procured so quickly, it was ordered that everyone at the post offices in stock pennies of the 2nd Control Council issue with a district stamp and should be sold for new currency.
Although the SMA's decision expressly determined only the penny values of the 2nd Control Council edition for overprinting, not only were the values in stock of the 1st Control Council edition still officially overprinted, but also the market values and various special stamps at individual post offices and even used for internal purposes (demonstrable e.g. E.g. on parcel cards, payment cards or similar).
Because of this relatively primitive manufacturing process, there were numerous counterfeits during the course of the brands. In addition, after the end of the official production period that expired on July 2, 1948, some of them were made illegally, partly during the course, sometimes afterwards to a very large extent, for reasons of convenience or out of a desire for profit from postal officials. For this reason, the prices apply only to tested pieces.
Deviations in the prints due to the manufacturing process are particularly numerous in this series. Different positions of the overprint, including upside down and double, fluctuations in the overprint colors and thickness, unclean, weak or incomplete overprint are by no means to be regarded as a variant and therefore cannot be cataloged.

The prices apply only to tested pieces of the most common locations and imprints; unchecked items are to be rated like unstamped stamps. The (D prices apply to brands with identifiable cancellation stamps, otherwise values are also checked.
Stamps like ** - Stamps with checked hand stamp printing (exception: pieces tested in the block).
Surcharges are granted for larger demand letter and parcel card sections. Minimum surcharge 4,-.
Validity of General Issues: Nos. 166-231 were also valid in the western sectors from Berlin until March 20, 1949.
Cataloging see under forerunners Berlin (West).

re: General Issues Sovjet Zone / Allgemeine Ausgaben Sowjetische Zone

(continued from previous post)

District cataloging:
The control stamps introduced in 1893 were used for overprinting for all payment transactions. At that time, each OPD was given a number (district number), which was determined in alphabetical order of the OPD seats. At that time, the OPD Aachen received No. 1, Berlin 3, Hall 20, Hamburg 21, continuously up to 37 Schwerin and 38 Stettin. With the progressive numbering of the OPDs, which were founded later, Chemnitz received No. 41 and after 1938 Vienna No. 58. In the next line there is the respective post office. At that time there were 10 different district stamps for the area of the Soviet occupation zone, apart from the 6 offices in the former OPD 29, which changed their district number 20. The 10 options are:

District Post Code
3 = Berlin OPD district (Soviet sector only) (1)
14 = Dresden OPD district (East Saxony and remaining Silesia) (10a)
16 = OPD district Erfurt (Thuringia) (15a) (15b)
20 = OPD district Halle (Saxony-Anhalt) (19a) (19b)
27 = OPD district Leipzig (West Saxony) (l0b)
29 = former OPD district Magdeburg, now belonging to 20 (Halle) (19b)
36 = OPD district Potsdam (Brandenburg) (2)
37 = OPD district Schwerin (Mecklenburg) (3a) (3b)
38 = remaining area of the former OPD district Steten, now belonging to 37 (Schwerin) (3b)
41 = former OPD district Chemnitz, now mainly belonging to 27 (Leipzig) (l0b)


Particularities
In the following, the special features of the district hand stamp imprints are shown, which can be found in all or most of the districts. Further special features are then listed according to the individual districts.

A Buchstaben types:
a Gothic (fracture) - older and most common form of “stempel”
b Latin (grotesque) - new “stempel”, approx. 25% frequency
c Place name in capital letters (capital letters) - about 35 types known so far

B Stempel types:
a One-liner (district number and place name on one line) do not occur
b Two lines (district number on one line, place name on the second line below) are 95% of all imprints
c Three lines (district number on one line, place name underneath divided on two lines) can be found in all districts, except 20 Large district numbers are not common. The largest is 3 Berlin-Köpenick
Rubber stamps were used in some cases, some of which differ greatly in type from the standard

C Imprint position:
a The most common is the position according to regulation: from bottom left to top right
b Falling, horizontal, vertical, upside down: no special evaluation, since mostly gimmick or exclusive position
c Double overprints: often, no surcharge. “Stempel” over two stamps: see special features for the individual districts

D pairs with different overprints:
It happened occasionally that the stamps were changed during the overprinting of a sheet, so that pairs - with different overprints
could be separated out. If district stamps of subordinate departments were used centrally by the post office, couples with different place names could also be created. In some places, such pairs were deliberately made. See also peculiarities in the individual districts. The vast majority of all couples were divided up undetected in the postal service.

a pairs with and without imprint: surcharge 75 euro
b Couples with stamps from different locations: surcharge 150 euro
c Pairs with different types of stamps from the same location: surcharge 125 euro

E Non-local stamps:
a First of all, here are the post offices and branch post offices that have been supplied by their accounting offices.
b There are independent offices that are nevertheless temporarily supplied by other offices, e.g. 37 Jarmen, who made brands himself, but was then supplied by 38 Demmin.
C A number of post offices made no use of self-production, e.g. 16 Treffurt was supplied by Mühlhausen.
d It was easily possible to deliver every imprint in every place. Above all, East Berlin overprints are sought on West Berlin letters. The district overprints were valid for postage throughout the entire Soviet occupation zone, which means that mixed frankings of several local overprints are possible (mostly collector's letters). Surcharge 50%, letter at least 15, - surcharge.

F Different district numbers in town:
Some places used the old district stamps of dissolved OPD administrations with the new ones side by side because they were not yet sufficiently supplied with district stamps with the new district number. for example 27 and 41 Chemnitz, 37 and 38 Greifswald. Couples with different district numbers are also known here (** surcharge 200 euro, letter 350 euro).

G “Stempel” colors:
a Normal printing color is black. Only in a few places is the black color occasionally the rarer.
b Violet and similar tints like purple and blue also occur.
c On the dark values (mainly at 2 Pf, but also at 6 and 15 Pf), red postage stamps were applied to some post offices (see also special features for the individual districts).
Green and white paint has also been used in some cases.
Couples with stamps of different colors: surcharge 80 euro.

(continued from the previous post)

I District 3 (OPD Berlin)
On June 24, 1948, 32 post offices, 1 parcel post office and the main telegraph office belonged to the OPD Berlin (district 3) in the Soviet sector. Of these 34 offices, only the post office Berlin C2 made no use of your right to imprint stamps. The remaining 33 offices and 24 branch post offices used a total of 181 different imprints, some in different colors.

II district 14 (OPD Dresden)
A total of 261 different district imprints from a total of 157 post offices were used for overprinting in the OPD Dresden, some in different colors. The areas of the former OPD Breslau around Görlitz, Ruhland, Hoyerswerda, Weißwasser, Niesky, Rothenburg, Rietschen, Meiskau and Horka already belonged to the OPD Dresden on June 24, 1948 and used district imprints with the number 14. Foreign district imprints have not been disclosed. There are no district imprints from the following post offices in Dresden A 7, Dürrröhrsdorf and Siebenlehn.

III district 16 (OPD Erfurt)
A total of 336 different district imprints from a total of 186 post offices were used for overprinting in the OPD Erfurt, some in different colors. There are no district imprints from the following post offices: Benneckenstein, Brotterde, Hildburg, Niederorschel and Treffurt.

IV District 20 (OPD Halle)

There are no district imprints from the following post offices: Bad Lauchstädt, Höfensleben, Krossen, Leuna, Mücheln, Seehausen (Kr Wanzleben) and Wanzleben.

V District 27 (OPD Leipzig)
A total of 244 different district imprints from a total of 160 post offices were used for overprinting in the OPD Leipzig. There are no district imprints from the following post offices: Leipzig 18 and Etz-there via Roßwein. The latter produced emergency imprints due to the lack of a district stamp, see under local editions.

VI District 29/20 (former OPD Magdeburg)
On July 23, 1945, the newly founded OPD Halle (Saale) took over the postal support for the area of the OPD Magdeburg. On June 24, 1948, however, the old district imprints with the number 29 were still in use, especially with smaller post offices, so that there are a total of 51 post offices (55 different stamps) that overprinted stamps with the district number 29. 6 post offices (10 different stamps) changed the district number to "20" by filing down the smear of the "9". Only from Groningen there are district stamp imprints with both No. 29 and No. 20.

VII District 36 (OPD Potsdam)
In the OPD Potsdam, a total of 261 different district imprints from a total of 175 post offices were used for overprinting, some in different colors. There are no district imprint from the following post offices: Biesenthal and Stadt Hoppegarten

VIII District 37 (OPD Schwerin)

IX district 38 (former OPD Szczecin)
In the fall of 1945, the non-Polish areas of the OPD Szczecin were merged with the OPD Schwerin. The old district imprints with the number 38 had to be replaced by those with the number 37. On the day of the currency reform, on June 24, 1948, this arrangement had not yet been feasible everywhere, so that a total of 30 different district imprint with the number 38 from 16 post offices were used for overprinting, some in different colors.

X District 41 (former OPD Chemnitz)
The area of the Chemnitz OPD already belonged to the OPD loan on June 24, 1948. Nevertheless, a total of 194 different district imprints with the number 41 from a total of 118 post offices were used to overprint the stamps: some in different colors. There are no district imprints from the following post offices of the former OPD Chemnitz: Annaberg-Buchholz (Erzgeb) 1, Neukirchen (Erzgeb), Wiesenburg (Sachs) and Wilkau-Haßlau (Sachs).



Uber frankaturen:
In the emergency period from 1945 to 1948, there were large amounts of non-philatelic franking on demand consignments due to the repeated lack of brands, but also due to the decline in money. Such evidence should not be considered inferior.

General issues for the entire Soviet zone

After the 21.6. The currency reform carried out in the three western zones in 1948, which led to a break between the Soviet military administration and the other Allies, the SMA set its own currency reform for June 24, 1948, which affected both the SBZ and the entire area of Greater Berlin a castle. From that day on, the post offices were no longer allowed to sell any of the old stamps in Reichsmark currency, but those in the hands of the post users remained valid for 1/10 of their postage value until July 31, 1948.
Since on June 24, 1948 no uniform edition in new currency was available (these only started on June 29 with the machine print edition no. 182-197) and could not be procured so quickly, it was ordered that everyone at the post offices in stock pennies of the 2nd Control Council issue with a district stamp and should be sold for new currency.
Although the SMA's decision expressly determined only the penny values of the 2nd Control Council edition for overprinting, not only were the values in stock of the 1st Control Council edition still officially overprinted, but also the market values and various special stamps at individual post offices and even used for internal purposes (demonstrable e.g. E.g. on parcel cards, payment cards or similar).

A total of 157 different district imprints from 100 post offices were used for overprinting in the OPD Schwerin, some in different colors. There are no district imprints from the following post offices: Stargard Castle (Mecklenburg), Eggesin, Lalendorf (Gustrow District).

IX district 38 (former OPD Szczecin)
In the fall of 1945, the non-Polish areas of the OPD Szczecin were merged with the OPD Schwerin. The old district imprints with the number 38 had to be replaced by those with the number 37. On the day of the currency reform, on June 24, 1948, this arrangement had not yet been feasible everywhere, so that a total of 30 different district imprint with the number 38 from 16 post offices were used for overprinting, some in different colors.

X District 41 (former OPD Chemnitz)
The area of the Chemnitz OPD already belonged to the OPD loan on June 24, 1948. Nevertheless, a total of 194 different district imprints with the number 41 from a total of 118 post offices were used to overprint the stamps: some in different colors. There are no district imprints from the following post offices of the former OPD Chemnitz: Annaberg-Buchholz (Erzgeb) 1, Neukirchen (Erzgeb), Wiesenburg (Sachs) and Wilkau-Haßlau (Sachs).



Uber frankaturen:
In the emergency period from 1945 to 1948, there were large amounts of non-philatelic franking on demand consignments due to the repeated lack of brands, but also due to the decline in money. Such evidence should not be considered inferior.

Great post... So many varieties! And then you throw in all the local overprints issued in the 1945-6 period. Overwhelming...
