Can someone identify this overprinted set? I think this might be a local stamp issue. I don't have a Michel catalog so would appreciate it if I could get caralog numbers and a value. Thank you.Image Not Found

I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

re: Germany - Overprinted

They are 1948 Provisional Overprints. Scott #10N1-10N16. Value $6.80 used set and $4.20 mint. Never Hinged $10.

Edit to add: I believe they are Michel #166-181 located under General Issues for the Entire Soviet Zone (Allied Occupation). It also mentions that bogus overprints are extremely common.

Ho ho ho mbo1142

As I stated in the post of about 3 years ago there are in total 1946 different BEZIRK imprints on only 4 set of stamps.

A lot of these series are sought after by collectors and are quite expensive to purchase.

re: Germany - Overprinted

I think Mel was on the right track with the "Berlin" overprint, but the various numbers indicate specific regional (district) usage.

BTW, at a conference just after my old company bought a German firm we all eagerly gathered business cards from district managers whose titles we found hilarious in English - e.g. "Lothar Leichenberg, Bad Durkheim Bezirker" (i.e. "Lothar Pile-of-Corpses, District Manager for the Region of Bad Durkheim").

No offence to my German friends, just 50 year old men acting like 9 year old boys...

If all stamps have the overprint "3 Berlin 8" you are missing just one and that is the most expensive of the series.

The 60 pfg value is available in 2 different colors.

That one that is missing has a catalog value of 250 euros MNH and 400 euros used.
