1940 Buildings

Third Reich Postage Stamps

In November 1940, the Third Reich released the Buildings issues in booklet form, or Markenheftchen (MH).  The booklets (MH 47) consist of the following panes, or Heftchenblättern (H-Bl.):

  • One H-Bl. 115 consisting of MiNr 753 (x5) and MiNr 754 (x5)
  • One H-Bl. 116 consisting of MiNr 751 (x4), MiNr 756 (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).
