Silver Jubilee Forgery

WWII Forgeries

This is the German parody forgery of the 1935 Great Britain 1/2 penny Silver Jubilee stamp.

Changes to the design include Stalin in place of King George V, and “This war is a / Jewsh war” in place of “Silver Jubilee / Half Penny.”  The dates have also been changed from the original 1910-1935 to 1939-1944.

The Star of David and hammer and sickle also appear throughout the design.
