1911 / 1919 Overprint Issues

This set of overprints was released beginning in January 1911. The stamps are overprints of the German “Germania” issues.

They differ from previous Germania overprints by a difference in spelling — “Marokko” vice the earlier “Marocco”.

A “Minister” or “VIP” printing also exists of MiNr. 58 (MiNr. 58 I A M).

Printing continued into 1919, leading to numerous variations caused by differences in peacetime and wartime printing capabilities.

Additionally, in 1923, the Reichspostministerium (German Postal Ministry) conducted a sale of old German postage to help fund German reparations payments to the Allies. Competes sets were sold in envelopes specifically printed for this purpose.

The back has the seal of the Reichspostministerium Markenverwertungsstelle, the office of the German Postal Ministry responsible for stamp sales.
