Olympic Sailing Competition

Third Reich Postal Stationery

These cards were issued on 1 August 1936 to commemorate the 1936 Summer Olympics sailing events held at Kiel.

The stamp design is the Olympic Bell, and the photo on the left is a sailboat.

Two commemorative cancels were available in Kiel from 4-14 August 1936 — one at the Kiel post offices, and another at the Olympic Press Office.
