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”.

MiNr. 25 Plate Flaw I — Crosshatched ‘1’ (right)

The larger format Yacht 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.
