Adolf Hitler

Third Reich Postage Stamps

The Third Reich issued this series of definitives depicting Adolf Hitler beginning 1 August 1941.  The 42 Pf value was issued much later, in 1944.

Due to their design, these issues are commonly referred to as “Hitler Head” issues.

MiNr 781-786 are typography on chalky paper, while MiNr 787 onward are engraved on ordinary paper.

The stamps are similar to the later 20 March 1942/1944 and December 1942 Hitler definitives.

For booklets and sheets of these issues, see here and here.
