This Block was issued on 22 June 1936 to commemorate the 3d Race for the Brown Ribbon in München-Riem.

Those with “X” suffixes feature a normal swastika watermark — when viewed from the rear, the legs of the swastika point in a counterclockwise direction. The “Y” suffixes feature the rarer reversed swastika watermark, with the legs of the swastika pointed in a clockwise direction when viewed from the rear.

Also shown is a poster advertising the sale of the stamp.
