1897 Jaluit Krone / Adler Overprints

The first stamps produced especially for the German colony in the Marshall Islands were overprinted versions of German Krone/Adler Issues.

The initial batch was printed in Berlin between 15 and 20 February 1897, and they first became available for use in the Jaluit post office on 10 April 1897.

The Jaluit Overprint issues are difficult to distinguish from the later Berlin reprints, with only slight variations in color, paper, and gum.
