Airmail Permission Stamp

Feldpost

On 18 April 1942, the Third Reich first issued this stamp for air military post packages.

The 1942 issues (MiNr 1 A) are found in three varieties — smooth gum (x), horizontally-rippled gum (y), and vertically-rippled gum (z).

The 1943 issues (MiNr 1 B) feature rougher, sawtooth perforations, and are found in two varieties — smooth gum (x) and horizontally-rippled gum (y).

Imperf varieties also exist in two gum types — smooth gum (x) and horizontally-rippled gum (y).

For the British forgery of this issue, see the Feldpost Airmail Forgery.
