On 17 October 1914, the Commonwealth forces occupying German New Guinea issued their first overprinted stamps.
These British Occupation Issues are German New Guinea registration labels overprinted “G.R.I. / 3d.”, with a new value of 3 Pence.
Shown below are the stamps of the GermanStamps.net Collection on the physical album pages.
The British Occupation Officials are German New Guinea MiNr. 7 and MiNr. 8 overprinted “O.S. / G.R.I. / 1d.”.
In 1902, private versions of the Kaiser’s Yacht Postcards became available for use in German New Guinea.
Only one variant exists — a 5 Pfg value depicting a scene from the Bismarck Archipelago.
