1937 Ships

Third Reich Postage Stamps

In 1937, the Third Reich released the Ships issues in booklet form, or Markenheftchen (MH).  The booklets consist of the following panes, or Heftchenblättern (H-Bl.):

  • One H-Bl. 109 consisting of MiNr 653 (x5) and MiNr 654 (x5)
  • One H-Bl. 110 consisting of MiNr 651 (x4), MiNr 656 (x5), and text field (x1)

The panes are separated by a blank interleave.

The booklets and panes have numerous varieties, depending on the length of the staple and the placement of printing marks within the pane margins.

The booklet panes can also be found in the uncut booklet pane sheets, or Markenheftchenbogen (MHB).
