1900 / 1901 Yacht Issues

The overprint issues used throughout the German colonies were replaced in 1900/1901 with a standardized design, featuring Kaiser Wilhelm II’s yacht, the Hohenzollern II.

The 1900/1901 Yacht Issues can be distinguished from the 1915/1919 Yacht Issues by the addition of a lozenge-shaped watermark to the 1915/1919 issues.

Several proofs exist, including copies on watermarked paper and this proof of a 2 Pf value.

For specimen overprints, see the 1900 / 1901 Yacht Issue Specimens.

Additionally, in 1923, the Reichspostministerium (German Postal Ministry) conducted a sale of old German postage to help fund German reparations payments to the Allies. Compete 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.
