re: Memel...what do I have here?

Found in Wikipedia: Initially German then French and Lithuanian overprinted stamps were used by Memel. Memel issued stamps between 1920 and 1923 when it was annexed by Lithuania.

re: Memel...what do I have here?

these are a form of cto that is not that uncommon for German / German area stamps of this period. There were a couple of stamp dealers specializing in creating philatelic covers and other stuff, such as this sheet. I am not sure if this is true, but I read that sometimes official cancellers that somehow got into the hands of these dealers were used. These were often backdated.

Hello AOP2B,
Look at the following post

https://stamporama.com/discboard/disc_main.php?action=20&id=11132#165465

There I explained something about MEMEL

You can find these stamps in a MICHEL catalog GERMANY TILL 1945 under MEMEL
and just like JanSimon says this kind of sheets are common for Germans.
