re: First Issues and Numbers Ones (part 8)

Hi angore,

That's an intriguing stamp design!

The currency represented on the stamps of this set is strange with higher values in silbergroschen but the low values such as this one in centimes rather than kreuzer.

Luxembourg was in a German currency union but traded heavily with France and Belgium so I guess this reflected the coins in circulation at the time.

The portrait is King William III of the Netherlands who was also Grand Duke of Luxembourg.

Luxembourg and the Netherlands were independent of each other at this time although having the same monarch, rather like Scotland and England between 1603 and 1707.

However, William was succeeded by different monarchs because the two countries had different inheritance laws.

Regarding the Mexican stamps, overprints were manually applied to them with the name of the District.

The stamp you shown not have overprint. On some occasions the overprints were not applied and the stamp remained without them, they were only identified with the name of the town on the cancellation.

Here one with overprint:

re: First Issues and Numbers Ones (part 8)

Hi angore,

That's an intriguing stamp design!

The currency represented on the stamps of this set is strange with higher values in silbergroschen but the low values such as this one in centimes rather than kreuzer.

Luxembourg was in a German currency union but traded heavily with France and Belgium so I guess this reflected the coins in circulation at the time.

The portrait is King William III of the Netherlands who was also Grand Duke of Luxembourg.

Luxembourg and the Netherlands were independent of each other at this time although having the same monarch, rather like Scotland and England between 1603 and 1707.

However, William was succeeded by different monarchs because the two countries had different inheritance laws.
