1905 Yacht Issues

In 1905, Kiautschou issued this set of Yacht issues switching from Pfennig/Mark currencies to Cents/Dollars.

They can be distinguished from the later 1905/1919 Yacht Issues by the use of lozenge watermarked paper on the 1905/1919 issues.

MiNr. 25 can also be found with crosshatched printing of the numeral “1”.

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.
