1900 / 1901 Yacht Issues

German New Guinea

The overprint issues used throughout the German colonies were replaced in December 1900 with a standardized design featuring Kaiser Wilhelm II’s yacht, the Hohenzollern II.

The larger value issues of the set were released in March 1901.

The 1900/1901 Yacht Issues can be distinguished from the 1914 Yacht Issues by the addition of a lozenge-shaped watermark to the 1914 issues.
