1901 Yacht Issues

In January 1901, Kiautschou issued its first stamps featuring the standard German Colonies design, Kaiser Wilhelm II’s yacht, the Hohenzollern II.

The 1901 Yacht Issues can be distinguished from the 1905 Yacht Issues by the use of Pfennig/Mark currency as opposed to later Cents/Dollars currency.

The larger format Mark issues of the German Colonies have slight differences in color, perforation, or frame/center types. For a detailed description of the frame/center types, see the guide to Colonial Frame & Center Types.
