re: Poland Surcharged Stamp?

I have this and several other similar stamps. They are considered to be Polish local stamps, probably Warsaw. I bought a book by the J. Barefoot Ltd. called "Poland 1918 Locals" and this is 9c on page 37, and yes it is from Warsaw and has a huge value of 10 cents mint, 20 cents used. There are a huge number of Local Poland stamps!! If you're interested you have to buy the book since I remember there being very little useful info on line

re: Poland Surcharged Stamp?

It is Michel number 9c from the German occupation 1914/1918 (Deutsche Post in Polen)

Here are a couple of other stamps from that period.

Warsaw City Post Office
The citizens' committee of the capital Warsaw

In agreement with the German postal authority, set up a delivery service from the German postal service to the recipients of ordinary items residing in the city. Registered mail, money shipments and parcels, on the other hand, had to be picked up personally from the German post office upon request by postcard, which was also requested by Stadt-post and was subject to delivery charges.

The order service, which was recorded on September 23, 1915 at 5 p.m. in Mazowiecka Str. 7, expanded to regular city mail service on October 21, 1915. On October 21, 1915, the German authorities granted the city post office permission to also deliver items that were posted within Warsaw. Letters with MiNr. 1-4, which have already run within Warsaw before this date, are very rare (letter 500 euro). These documents bear dates between 23.9. and October 20, 1915; the frame stamp "WRECZENIE OPLACONE" is missing. However, the shipments within the city also had to be delivered to the German post office and released with the occupation stamps (MiNr. 1-16) before they were handed over to the Warsaw city post office for forwarding. The procedure of Pick-up of registered and cash items remained.

Since October 21, 1915, the consignments whose order money had been paid in advance (sometimes also in stamps) had been given the frame stamp "WRECZENIE OPLACONE" (delivery paid). Letters 200% surcharge (at least 8, -).

In October 1916 the city postage stamps were suspended; since October 20, 1916, only delivery fee stamps were left
