Aid for Serbian Prisoners of War

This set of stamps was issued to benefit Serbian Prisoners of War.

Without (left) and with (right) engraver’s mark

The stamps were printed in 10×5 sheets, with the stamps of each 5×5 half-sheet forming a cross pattern — unburelaged stamps at the center, surrounded by partially burelaged stamps, with full burelaged stamps on the outside.  The center row of the sheets shows stamps of all 4 designs. The half sheets can be found with and without the engravers mark stamps in the center (MiNr. 54 A II-MiNr. 57 A II).
